Deana has been creating art for more than 20 years. She began working in leather in the late 1980’s and found it to be quite adaptable. Tapping into her connection with nature, she began creating intricate pyrographic illustrations on leather and in 1995 began sculpting.
Metal smithing began to play a part a few years later, and she now finds herself splitting time between her passion for sculpting and silver smithing. The melding of the two allows her to incorporate a unique flavor to the finished work.
