Deidre teaches art through her business, Brush of Creativity, which represents a culmination of her life’s work, producing a broad assortment of rich art courses, programs, and events that reach much further into a person’s awareness than standard art classes in general. She offers inspiring insights, fun anecdotes and an emphasis on connection! All of Deidre’s classes and playshops fall under ‘fine art’, some are fun and flip, while others offer more esthetic concepts along the lines of ‘Strengthening one’s Creative Journey’ and pathways to ‘Deeper Creative Awareness’, within the inner being and creative soul with ‘step by step’ concepts and exercises for participants to connect/reconnect with their inner place of expression, through art, heart, and inner-spirit-spark to realize their strongest essence which can lead to the manifest of their life’s dreams. From the sciences of the mind through sensory play, her courses help create powerful manifestations through an exploration of color, visualization, stimulating imagination, intuition, and mindful art. #BrushOfCreativity
Enjoys uniting artists to events on several social media outlets:
Facebook, MeetUp & Pinterest through Creative to the Core: https://www.facebook.com/groups/CreativeToTheCore/
& the annual Black Fri Flood-the-Streets-with-ART https://www.meetup.com/Flood-the-Streets-with-ART-Sacramento/
Advocates letting a painting become. A process of ‘allowing’ it to develop through open space, depth, and intensity, and although mostly non-representational expressive it often nods towards a subtle essence of something like a mood, color, or it may end up being a song of balance, mystery, hue, intensity, calm, power, harmony or energy. This process started years ago when she was entirely fed up with the much-needed control in creating photorealistic watercolors.
She hung all her pieces up and asked herself what she liked best about them & the answer was the backgrounds, so she started making what she loved about the backgrounds into the foregrounds and left it at that.
Deidre is a lifelong fine artist, and 30+ yr graphic designer, arts-instructor, integrated into teaching programs and elevated workshops like ‘Creative to the Core’, ‘Science of Color’, ‘Discover the Hue of you’, & ‘Imagine if’ as well as standard art lessons from drawing, to painting & mixed media . Which can also be used for teambuilding, multi-gen-groups, fundraising, art-heals therapy, and youth-oriented custom STEAM style programs.
