Deana's paintings draw viewers into an intriguing landscape of color and emotion. When beginning a painting, Deana explains, “ I seek only to express and evoke emotion; I utilize color, texture, and scale to express the joy and pain of the human condition, feelings that all of us identify with. I paint what I feel, without concern for mainstream demands and trends, striving to remain free from ego and focused on gratitude to God for this beautiful and gratifying experience.”
