Atmospheric changes are the inspiration for many of Deanna’s paintings. Intrigued by texture and reflections, the subtle shifts in color and tone are represented in her landscapes, seascapes and abstract paintings utilizing water media. Her paintings are best known for their luminosity, subtle color shifts and iridescence. Texture is introduced either through the use of color or gel additives to give a more tactile feel to her work. Observing spectacular sunsets over the water or the Northern Lights dancing across the sky have inspired her art in her travels throughout the United States, Canada and Italy.
