Having local artists represented in the store is a top priority for me. I love the connection I, and in turn you, are able to make with them and with their work. I love that I know that the art hanging in my home was created out of passion, desire and talent. There's something special about seeing a painting- all of the layers and textures- that has just recently been created by the artist's hands.
That is why I'm excited to introduce all of you to Deann. Deann Hebert is an artist from Nashville and our newest local addition to Itty Bitty Bella. From 5 inches square to 4 feet square, Deann has canvas art that will fill your needs and your walls.
Her work features whimsical subjects such as sail boats and angels as well as more rustic scenes that showcase country barns and bird nests.
Her style is one that is very layered, textured and full of depth. Deann is known for her bright colors and rich textures. Her signature impasto-style of applying layer upon layer of acrylic paint, and finishing with a high gloss UV-protectant varnish is a technique that she developed by trial and error. Unexpected touches can always be expected.
The girls and I will be sure to update you as new pieces arrive. If there's something special you're looking for, just let me know. Deann is more than willing to take on custom projects. What better way to personalize a nursery!
