Over the past decade, Deena has been pushed to the edges of her artistic comfort zone, exploring new ways of seeing & interpreting the world around her. Her mother, a professional artist & life-long educator, influenced Deena’s keen sense of observation, to see the subtle complexities of life, relationships, & power dynamics that both hold & hinder. As a professional artist & designer, Deena's work reflects these nuances through the use of saturated colors, blurred & layered lines with an energetic dose of geometric design. Her art delves into these footholds of the human experience, inviting viewers to consider these themes from a new perspective and explore the lines between ease & discomfort as a way to regulate into presence.
