A few weeks ago, we began a new series to usher in our blog's redesign called Wet Paint. In this series, we select an Artsicle artist and then ask them to complete a short personal questionnaire. The last artist we chose was Malado Baldwin. Today, we have Deanna Lee!
Why We Love Her
We love Deanna's drawings, which start as "controlled doodles" and develop into lovely and mysterious abstract works. Taking inspiration from the motifs of clouds, waves, and hair in traditional Asian art, her work explores moods and relationships using natural forms that reveal themselves to her as she draws. We think you'll love getting lost in these tangles.
1. Name/Age: Deanna Lee, 41
2. Hometown: Norwood, MA
3. Super power you would like to possess: Telekinesis
4. If you from another era, what would it be? I wish I could live in Northern Song-dynasty China (960-1127) because the art developed in that period was incredible, but I would have to be very affluent in order to experience it in my home.
5. As kid you were obsessed with: Greek and Roman mythology and Agatha Christie
6. Favorite Piece on Artsicle that's not your own: Spider by Kirsten Nash
