Charleston, South Carolina
Originally from Richmond, Virginia, Deane relocated to the Lowcountry almost 10 years ago and now calls Charleston home. She is passionate about being an environmentally conscientious artist making it her mission to create eco friendly art. While Deane’s eclectic collection includes pieces in mixed media collage, clay and paint, her work in found object sculpture brings her the greatest joy and satisfaction.
As a self-taught artist, Deane’s creative process is guided by two principles. First and most importantly, produce art that makes people happy. Second, strive to be an environmentally conscientious artist whose work has a positive impact on the environment and celebrates recycling as an art form. Using mostly discarded, abandoned, and reclaimed materials, her “environmental folk art” honors those forgotten things. Their interaction with one another is accomplished through detailed layering in a graphic and interesting medley highlighted with bold, vibrant colors to create an unusual balance of industry and art.
