Class Information and Procedures
Deanna's inspiration comes from travels throughout the United States, Canada and Italy. The Kawartha Lakes in Canada is one of her favorite subjects and is frequently featured in her paintings. Observing spectacular sunsets over the water and the Northern Lights occasionally dancing across the sky has inspired a number of her paintings. Deanna uses large brushes, rags and her fingers to create spontaneous, intuitive paintings that are a beautiful mix of representational abstract.
A graduate of State University College at Buffalo with a degree in design, Deanna worked as a graphic designer for several years before leaving to raise a family. Her other artistic endeavors included designing and dressmaking of wedding gowns, until her passion for painting pulled her back to full time professional fine art. She shares her knowledge and love of painting through teaching and demos. Deanna is a Signature Member of Niagara Frontier Watercolor Society where she serves on the Board of Directors and is Co-Chair of the Exhibitions Committee, an Exhibiting Member of Buffalo Society of Artists where she serves on the Board of Directors and is Membership Chair, an Exhibiting Member of Pittsburgh Watercolor Society and an Associate Member of Philadelphia Watercolor Society.
