Hi, I'm Deanna

I'm an artist living in Geneva, Illinois. After earning a degree in graphic design from Columbia College Chicago, I worked as a designer for several years. In the spring of 2016, I picked up a paintbrush and fell in love with watercolors. Shortly after, I began sharing my paintings online and selling my cards at markets. For me, painting brings joy to my daily life and gives me a fresh creative voice.

To share my love of watercolors, I teach creative workshops in Chicago and suburbs. I have collaborated with brands for workshops and pop-up events including J.Crew, West Elm, Dose Market and Crate & Kids.

I specialize in illustration, invitations and have a small collection of greeting cards and art prints in my shop. Everything is printed in the USA and assembled by hand in my home studio.

Inspired by: vintage bicycles, classic romantic films and beautiful florals
