Deena comes from a long line of artists. Her great grandfather lived in Russia, under communism he was forced to be a carpenter. His true passion was carving wooden carousel horses that he hid in his basement. Immigrating to the US he not only created more carousel horses but also painted beautiful murals in various buildings that can still be found today.
Deena did not immediately begin an art career after graduating high school, she unexpectedly joined the military.
Serving her country developed self-discipline and self-reliance. After her service, she aligned herself with an art path by obtaining a degree in visual art. Her work has evolved throughout the years landing her with a unique cubistic style of painting in watercolor and her love of robots interacting with the ordinary. Deena's artworks contain underlying influences of current events.
