Deena Hunkler-Sanks - Deena’s love for realism started her experimenting with trompe l’oeil to find her creative voice. Her paintings are filled with special meaning and Grandmas’ things.
Deena learned that “The objects must help tell a story or illustrate a theme so that the painting involves the viewer at many different levels.”
Inspiration comes from things borrowed from friends or family treasures. Everything has meaning and is symbolic to her—old photos, family keys, ticket stubs, books and more. The older and more tarnished with character, the better. Remembering your past and cherishing the legacy of your ancestors while creating new memories for your friends and family is the basis of her philosophy. She surrounds herself with materials posted on the walls and takes them down as ideas become memories.
