Resides in Los Angles, California
She studied at the University of Missouri and received her MFA from Claremont Graduate University in California. Weiner received the Distinctive Merit Award from the San Diego Museum of Art in 1993.
As an abstract painter, Weiner identifies with many of the postwar American transcendental abstract artists, such as Mark Rothko and Ross Bleckner. She creates her work by building up layers of poured acrylic paint and acrylic medium, sanding between each layer. Organic shapes meld into the deep space that is rendered by the smooth, glossy surface.
Weiner's work has been exhibited throughout the U.S. and can be found in corporate and private collections around the world including Adobe Systems, Inc., San Jose, CA; Kranson Industry Collection, St. Louis, MI; Media Fabricators, Los Angeles, CA; Wellington Management; Marriot Hotels, Alston & Bird, Atlanta, GA.
