BIO

2001-Present

DevaArt Studio in Virginia is where Dee works creating fine art paintings in several collections; WildLife, BirdLife, SeaLife and her new spiritual collection, SoulWorks. 

Amazing progress from student to disciplined artist. Dee's work shows a strong sense of form and accuracy of line. A promising artist. 

Barclay Sheaks; Associate Professor of Art at Virginia Wesleyan University, Norfolk, Virginia. He was my most inspirational art professor. I dedicate my love of making art to him.

Juried Invitational Shows                                             
Piedmont Regional Art Show, First Place; judges comment:

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.
