Deana spent the better part of her life in the desert Southwest. And it was the combination of the desert's beauty, her early artistic calling of Native American cultures, along with the allure of natural materials, that her uniquely individual artform was shaped.
She began working in leather in the late 1980’s and found it to be quite malleable. Tapping into her connection with nature, she began creating intricate pyrographic illustrations on leather. It was about 15 years later, around 1995, that she started sculpting with leather.
One of the most significant aspects of the process is collecting the materials that go into each piece. Each piece of sculpted leather is soaked, stretched, manipulated, and dried. Then dyes, stains, and paints are applied, along with pieces stones, driftwood, beads, etc. The sculptures she creates are uniquely original, often spiritual, and somewhat mystical. Creating them has allowed her to embrace the diversity of culture and the mysterious allure of magic.
In the early 2000’s, Deana expanded into becoming a Metal-Smith, which she translated into creating steam-punk-esq jewelry and memory-sticks, as well as melding leather & metal-work which allowed her to create another unique type of art. Deana currently spits her time between her home in Virgin, Utah and Dallas, Texas.
