Stella Vine said:I have always been drawn to the beauty and the tragedy of Diana’s

Stella Vine – Biography
Stella Vine was born Melissa Robson in 1969 in Alnwick, Northumberland. Following a difficult relationship with her stepfather, she was briefly fostered at the age of 13, before leaving school at 14 and becoming pregnant with her son at the age of 16. In 1983 she joined the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain and went on to work as an actress in theatres across the UK, as well as running her own improvised theatre company Minx In 1999 Vine studied painting part time at Hampstead School of Art. She opened the Rosy Wilde gallery in 2003 in a former butchers shop in the East End to show emerging artists. Around this time, Vine's mother died suddenly which fuelled a highly creative period during which she made the first of her paintings of Princess Diana and teenage girls like Rachel Whitear who suffered tragic deaths. Many of these paintings were destroyed by Vine soon after they were made. In 2004 Charles Saatchi purchased one of her paintings of Princess Diana 'Hi Paul, can you come over.' from an exhibition called Girl on Girl at Transition Gallery. In 2006 she reopened the Rosy Wilde Gallery, this time in Soho. Since then her work has been included in many exhibitions both in the UK and abroad. Solo exhibitions include: Petal, Alon Segev Gallery (TelAviv) 2004; Petal part two, Roberts & Tilton (Los Angeles) 2005; Stellawood, Hamiltons Gallery (London) 2005; Prozac and Private Views, Transition Gallery, (London) 2004; Whatever happened to Melissa Jane?, The Bailliffgate Museum, (Alnwick) 2006.
