This year, due to COVID-19 we are having our monthly demos virtually. This allows us to invite national artist as well as our local artist.

Virtual Meeting

Our Demo Artist for our first "virtual" meeting will be Deanna Thibault, demonstrating Mixed Media.

Deanna was born in a small town in Iowa and moved to Fresno, California when she was 10. Her art education “bloomed” in Fresno where she received her BFA from California State University. She now lives in North Texas.

Her husband joined the Air Force after college so they spent the next ten years in Arizona, Florida, California and Kansas as her art career as a teacher and artist reached “full bloom”.

All of the military relocations required her to take many jobs as she continued her teaching all age levels. After the Air Force, they spent the next 27 years in San Diego and then Tucson, Arizona after her husband retired.

Deanna is a signature member of the Southern Arizona Watercolor Guild, Arizona Aqueous Tubac, Western Federation of Watercolor Societies, Contemporary Artists of Southern Arizona and the West Texas Watercolor Society. She received the Dana Bartlett award at the National Watercolor Society All Member Show.
