"Emotion is at the core of my practice as an artist. No matter the subject or the style, it is my feelings that guide the medium. My artistic pursuit began as a photographer and a painter in my teens. I was surrounded by other artists; dancers, musicians, writers, actors, and studio artists alike. We were all learning our respective crafts, and the teenage emotion was electric. 

I attended a 4 year art college. As an art history/studio art major, I was taught how to truly see through intense observation and study: shape, form, line, color, and medium. After college I became a full time painter. I taught myself about the endless possibilities of color. I mixed and mixed, like a chemist in a lab, creating my own color charts.

My paintings are drawn from memory, and it is emotion that creates them. Nature, my experience and feelings when in it, are the foundation of all my work. The natural world brings my emotions to the surface!" - Phoebe Dean
