First Friday Artist Image

I am a multi-passionate artist who works primarily in painting and drawing. The inspiration for my content is always shifting and growing, but the subjects I have been passionate about, have been present in my art for many years. My primary subject focus is on women, most of my art is a depiction of some aspect of the feminine I either find in my self or in others. I also have a love for florals, plants, mandalas, and patterns. I spent much of my adult life focused on becoming a tattoo artist, which has greatly influenced my art and aesthetic, as well as my focus and determination to create good art.
Although I was always enthusiastic about pursuing a career in the arts, my drive really shifted with the birth of my daughter. Not only did the beauty and struggle of motherhood inspire me in deeper ways than I had experienced, but the constraint on my time really forced me to focus. I truly see and feel a major difference in the way i create. I was born, raised, and still reside in Santa Cruz where my family and I enjoy the sand, the sun, and the beauty of life.
I look forward to getting to meet many of you through art, and talking about what makes our worlds go round!

Cheers,

DeAnna
