Profile

Deanna Schuerbeke, Painter

Mixed Media
I want my art to stop you. I want it to draw you in even if just for a minute, to suspend you temporarily in a relationship. I want you to move through the piece and have it, in some way, move you. Perhaps there is something you didn't expect. A little surprise in the color, the light, the composition or a mark that makes you slightly cock your head, raise your eyebrows every so slightly and look. I am obsessed with the colors and textures of my surroundings. I am hoping that my abstract expressionistic paintings communicate the mood (or the velvetiness, the tumultuousness, the complexity, the serenity, or the soaken-wetness) of the incredible Pacific Northwest.
