Intuitive Paintings

Her paintings capture various forms of nature. For example, dragonflies, butterflies, flowers, birds and other expressive work. To illustrate, Dee uses imagery with healing colors seen in nature. These colors play an important role in creating her art. As a result, this reveals her love for the soft side of nature.

Creating art has been a unique spiritual journey. It has been a consuming, creative passion in her life. Painting to her is like a form of peaceful meditation.

Piedmont Regional Art Show, First Place; Comment by judge: Mr. Val Lauton, Chief Designer of the National Museum of American Art, Smithsonian Institution, Washington, DC:

I like this painting, Inner Sanctum, because of the way it is composed in the space. It’s about dancing and has the feeling of the dance. It also has a strong rhythmic, graphic image. Color matches mood. Extraordinary. Doesn’t use anymore then it has to.
