This page is in memory of Diane Burke, she was an amazing artist. Her creativity, loving and giving soul will be an inspiration to all of us that had the joy of knowing her and painting together.

Diane Burke was born on December 16, 1919 in southern Georgia.  Although a Georgian by birth, she moved to Central Florida with her family when she was very young. On 2013 she died.

We shared memorable times painting together with our friends in the painting classes or in the beautiful landscape of North Carolina. Diane's favorite settings for paintings were on site, a painting style called “plein–air”, artists like Diane use in an attempt to capture light's changing moods and effects on their landscape scenes. Diane used a limited palette of 5 colors plus white; alizarin crimson, ultramarine blue, cadmium yellow, cadmium yellow light and raw umber. She also used only refined linseed oil as a medium. Her paintings have been exhibited in galleries in North Carolina, West Virginia and owned by collectors in a number of states, including Italy. Diane spended much of her time painting  with  friends and attending meetings of the various art and civic organizations to which she belonged, including the Durham Art Guild, the American Impressionist Society, the Eno River Association and the Triangle Land Conservancy.  

Diane dreamed of going to college for a degree in art but because of the Depression her family  could not afford the expense.  After she graduated from high school, she decided to study nursing, which marked the start of her long career as a nurse, a nursing educator, and a nursing administrator. She obtained a BS degree in nursing from the University of Miami (Florida), a master's degree in nursing from the University of North Carolina (Chapel Hill), and graduate studies in pediatric nursing at the University of Texas. She taught pediatric and obstetrical courses in nursing at the University of Miami and held administrative positions as Director of Nursing at Variety Children's Hospital in Miami, FL (now Miami's Children's Hospital) and Supervisor of Pediatric Nursing Services at Duke Medical Center in Durham, NC.

After retiring from Duke Medical Center in 1984, Diane had the chance to pursue her lifelong dream of becoming an artist. She went to workshops in Florida North Carolina, Texas and at the age of 87 to Montana where she rode horseback to the painting sites.
