Deanna White

Pastels & Watercolor Paintings and Encaustic Wall Art
 
My art is about imagination and the emotional value of color. I want the viewer’s imagination to step inside the painting and live there for a moment. I enjoy working in many mediums. The rich pigment of pastels allow for vibrancy and movement with each stroke. Encaustic, hot beeswax painting allows for experimenting with technique and texture. Water based media is also a staple in my artistic diet.
 
I began my education in art and design at Humboldt State University. I toured Europe where I attended the Art Academy in Salzburg, Austria. I was an antique dealer for many years, and worked in the medical field. My travels to the Tahitian Islands, Mexico and South America inspired my current Fauvist approach to color. Strong shapes and vibrant, unorthodox color are my trademark. Magenta hills, cerulean skies and bright gamboges tree trunks adorn my fantasy expression of the Mid Willamette Valley which I see in the woods and gardens surrounding, my rural home.
