In 2018, Deana signed with Gallery 104 New York. Online, Deana’s work is featured on Gallery104.com and Artsy.net. Her large and medium sized abstract expressionist works are created with archival quality materials and surfaces she prepares herself. She paints on heavy-weight canvas, wood, rice paper, and durable printmaking papers, using oil, enamel, acrylic, Sumi ink, and Chinese water paint. Deana also utilizes fabric, decorative papers, and found objects to create unique and interesting mixed media pieces. Combinations of charcoal, Conte’, oil pastels, and a wide variety of medium and solvents create the texture, luminosity, and visually stimulating marks, lines, and organic forms that are characteristic of her work.
Deana’s work can be purchased through the aforementioned online galleries or you may contact her directly by telephone or email. Visits to Modern Art Concepts, the artist’s working studio and showroom, are available by appointment.
