I believe color can change your life. It changed mine.Deena Rose
It all started with a colorful coffee cup. That one, small act of defiance gave Deena the confidence she needed to make the next bold move, and then the next. And, soon, she found herself with enough strength to rediscover the color in her life.
Armed with an MBA in Marketing from the Marshall School of Business at USC, a BSBA from the Olin School of Business at Washington University and minor in visual art from Washington University in St. Louis, Deena spent years using her artistic talents as a marketing branding executive. She worked with creatives and business executives, ensuring that color and form communicated the desired branding message.
Deena now uses her skills and talents to play with color, opacity and minimalist form. She believes that art should spark an emotional response, and works to convey peace, calm and joy through color exploration.
With deep roots in mindfulness, Deena sets an intention for each piece – typically “bringing joy and color into everyday spaces” and then works with color theory to convey a particular feeling. This “prework” this helps drive the size, orientation and brush marks of each of her pieces.
Deena works exclusively in watercolor and likes to think of her work as a visual representation of the serenity prayer – exploring what she can control and what she can’t control – with the beauty coming through when she lets go.
Simple. Bright. Modern. Colorful. Joyful. Mindful.
