This is truly one of my favorite weeks of the year! Time to reflect, be grateful, slow down, and recharge. Thank you Lord for new opportunities and for blessing me with this community that supports, uplifts, and encourages. Starting each day with gratitude is a game changer.
You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens… Another highlight from this year, painting live at the Heritage Ball. @historicfranklin @nashvillelifestyles

About The Artist
Hi there! I'm Deann. I'm a painter. I traded in my corporate high heels for paint brushes years ago, and for the past decade have had an open working studio located in a once abandoned stove and mattress factory in beautiful historic Franklin, Tennessee, just south of Nashville. I love where I live, and in my paintings I seek to tell the stories of our collective past, the rich history of the South, and to inspire the viewer to listen to our ancestors voices and not just see but cherish our old places and the lives they have influenced. Formally trained at Auburn U and The Chelsea School of Art & Design, I use layer upon layer of palette knife texture that is reminiscent of tree bark and peeling barn paint. I do life with my family on a mini-farm in Brentwood, Tennessee. We have lots of animals including a rooster named Colonel, who keeps the entertainment coming. I hope you enjoy my work, and if you would like to stop by and see me at The Factory, just email me at [email protected] so I can be sure not to miss you!
