A native New Yorker, Diana Pinck grew up in a very artistic and intellectual milieu in her mother’s native Lucerne, Switzerland. Here she pursued painting, photography and writing from a very young age, encouraged by family and friends who recognized her raw talent. At New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts she continued honing her visual and intellectual skills and graduated with a BA in film production. To strengthen her competence in classical fine arts painting Pinck attended night classes at The Arts Student’s League of New York, while supporting herself as an X-Ray Technologist at Mount Sinai Hospital, New York.
Most recently the artist paints in oil on gold, silver and copper leaf. This new mixed media technique has elevated her work to a new plateau. An exhibition of these exciting new paintings is planned for the summer of 2015 in the Hamptons.
