A few of my favorite creative affirmations: I am a channel for Gods creativity, and my work comes to good. As I create and listen, I will be led. My creativity always leads me to truth and love. I am willing to be of service through my creativity. I am willing to experience my creative […]
Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with […]
We’re a lot like that old barn that sits out by the highway. It’s on the inside that the beauty grows with us. Sure we turn silver gray too, and we start leaning a bit more than we did when we were young and full of sap. But as the years pass, God is busy […]

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!
