Diane McGregor is an abstract painter based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Her work explores the metaphysical relationship between the natural world and the spiritual realm. She was born in Philadelphia, and grew up surrounded by nature in rural areas of Connecticut and New Jersey. McGregor received a BFA with Honors from the University of Arizona in 1985. She has been exhibiting her work professionally for more than three decades, and her art can be found in public and private collections throughout the United States and Europe. McGregor's work is represented by Space Gallery in Denver and SHIM Art Network in Brooklyn. She is also a member of Pell Lucy, an international collective of visual artists.
