About Dee

Dee Van Houten Fine Art at devaart.art

 

DevaArt Studio is the name of my fine art business. I design and create one-of-a-kind handmade jewelry (necklaces, earring, bracelets and rings) using sterling silver components and charms, wire wrapped (wire used is sterling silver, antique silver and/or antique copper) natural crystals (raw and tumbled smooth), genuine sea glass, Swarovski crystals, vintage beads from around the world, rough and smooth (tumbled) crystals, PMC (precious metal clay; 99.9% silver) and other unique findings.

When I paint, I create mostly in alcohol ink. Art prints and canvas prints can be ordered on this website as giclees (links are in footer on every page), which have been reproduced from my original paintings (available in various sizes and prices). I use gouache (opaque watercolor), watercolor, color pencil and acrylics as my painting mediums. Small polymer clay, handmade tealight sculptures are offered from September through December. All of my art work is original and handmade in the USA. All of my work is offered for sale at DevaArt Studio gallery store.

Dee has had individual exhibitions and works accepted in many juried art competitions, winning numerous awards for her paintings and drawings throughout the years. She was included in "American Artist of Renown," an honor accorded contemporary American artists for the exceptional quality and professionalism of their work. Her art is represented in public and private collections throughout the United States and Canada.

I offer whimsical animal art (elephants, zebras and other wildlife); birds such as flamingos, puffins, toucans, lovebirds, gouldian finches, parakeets and cockatiels); underwater paintings (clownfish, dolphins and other tropical fish) and paintings in the Art Nouveau style as giclee art prints.

Creating art, whether its paintings, jewelry or small clay sculptures, is a spiritual journey for me and has always been a consuming creative passion in my life. It is similar to a form of meditation, filled with serenity and peace blended with awe-inspiring colors which delights the vision that makes me want to create a work of art that people may relate to emotionally.

With over 20 years experience as a traditional fine art painter, designer and illustrator, I feel I can offer anyone from collectors to people who love art, beautiful, detailed work that is high quality and affordable. Your purchase is a very personal one and should be chosen with what feels good to you based on colors and subjects that you truly connect with. Buying a painting or print of my art is not only an investment, but a work of art that you will most likely live with for many years to come; therefore, you should be very happy with your purchase!
