Painting is a pigment of my imagination…
If I can create art, then everything will be good…
Dee studied fine art painting, illustration, web design, graphic design and communication design. Her collections: SoulWorks intuitive art, LifeExpressions custom order personal paintings and Animal Art. All art you see in her gallery-store at devaart.com is available as giclee art prints.
LifeExpessions are painting commissions for client’s who want a personal painting for a loved one, special friend or themselves. The painting features what they are passionate about in their life. The person’s essence is then captured in the artwork. For instance, World Traveler was for someone who loved to travel and adored elephants.
LifeExpressions paintings are created on either a 10″x10″ or 12″x12″ cradled substrate called, Claybord. This substrate is archival and acid-free. These are the only sizes I offer for this type of work. The finished painting is protected with several coats of satin (low-sheen) UV acrylic polymer varnish which is resistant to chemicals, water, abrasion and ultraviolet radiation. Also, I paint the sides of the cradled panel with acrylic acid free, museum quality paint. Cradled panels allow you to hang your work with no additional framing.
To learn more about one of these meaningful, heart-felt and personal LifeExpressions paintings, please go to the custom order page.
Original artworks and giclee prints can be seen and securely purchased from her online art gallery-store. In the Animal Art collection you can choose from flamingos, toucans, lovebirds, puffins, elephants, zebras and several others.
You will be able to choose from various sizes and media to have the artwork printed on, such as, museum quality archival matte or glossy paper, canvas and many others. Custom framing is also available. (All purchases are secure; communications between your browser and the website are encrypted).
