This is a small selection of testimonials written by collectors of my art. They have commissioned artwork from me, purchased originals, giclee prints or limited edition prints over the years.
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 creating art to him.
I've collected Dee Van Houten's art work for 23 years, and its STILL not enough! I own 17 pieces, and though I'm running out of wall space, I'll hang her fanciful, bright, uniquely creative works of sheer joy from the CEILING if I have to! Everything from her whimsical animals and 'garden moments' to her Art Nouveau style women and thematic dance art engages the eye and delights the heart. She has a gift - treat yourself and share in it...smile. J.N., Attorney, Virginia
Dee Van Houten's art is a testimony of her insight into the art of expression, as seen with her use of color, form and subject. Her fish swim through a myriad of soft, watery colors, her birds sing with the joy of life and her dancers are powerful and extend the boundaries of perception. Dee has been expressing herself through a variety of mediums on a 2D surface for years and she is a master of interpretation. Maureen O., Artist and Art Teacher, Canada
I have enjoyed my original artwork and prints from Dee since we started acquiring them more than 20 years ago. There are beautiful floral's and colorful, detailed animals and birds; peaceful, fun, and usually interacting with others in a whimsical grouping. These are pieces that my children enjoy and I expect they will each display a few in their own homes some day. I look forward to new creations by Dee to brighten my home and office.
