About the Artist

Diane Lufrano has been making art since childhood, when she painted denim jackets, t-shirts, shoes and handbags and sold them to boutiques in New York City and Staten Island.

After studying graphic design at Pratt Institute, Lufrano worked in advertising and package design in NYC.  Her dream job came when she was hired by Harper Collins to design book covers.  While raising a family, the artist completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at CUNY and earned her masters degree in Art Education from Kean University.

The Lambertville artist has always been passionate about teaching young people, and today she teaches in the West Windsor-Plainsboro school district, where her innovative teaching style has inspired a new generation of young artists.  The artist founded the popular “Got Art?” summer camp.

Her work has been exhibited at the Arts Council of Princeton, the Center for Contemporary Art, Prallsville Mill and Mercer County Community College.  Lufrano has taught at the Zimmerle Museum at Rutgers University and has hosted Art All Night drawing events.
