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.”
She explains of her process, “One item will appear before me and an idea is formed. Sometimes the title comes to me before the painting“.
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.
She works from both photographs and setup still life’s to use as reference material while painting.
Deena’s favorite artists are Haberle, Peto and Jorge Alberto from Baltimore, MD.
Deena has been active with Springfield Art Guild since 2006. She also has been a member of The Art League Bin Gallery and has been juried into shows there several times.
Deena was a member of the Loft Gallery in 2009-2010
and has rejoined the Loft Gallery after a brief move to Arkansas for two years where she showed her work at 726 Gallery and Fine Art Center in Hot Springs AR. Please come view her new works. www.deenahunklersanks.com
