Diana Gabriel is an artist and curator with a soft spot for artisans and an inclination toward all linear things, patterns, and simultaneity. Diana is primarily a painter but supplements this practice with large site-specific installations. She emigrated from Bogota, Colombia at a young age and quickly emerged herself in the Fine Arts. She earned her BFA from Northern Illinois University in 2004 and her MFA from Illinois State University in 2007.


Diana currently teaches Drawing and Design at Harper College in Palatine and College of Lake County in Grayslake, Illinois. Gabriel also curates bimonthly exhibitions at Morton College in Cicero and is the co-founder of TheCGProject, a creative platform for artists and audiences with a shared vision of increasing appreciation and accessibility of Art in our culture.
