Deanna Schrell

shapeimage_2Deanna Schrell was raised in the hot desert of Arizona and on the sandy beaches of California, before moving to the snowy mountains of Ketchum Idaho in 1974. This Background, along with her love for the outdoors is evidenced in her colorful paintings.

Art has been her passion since childhood. She has studied art at Boise State University And has taken numerous workshops, most extensively with Ovanes Berberian and Robert Moore. Her strong influences are Sergei Bongart, the Russian Impressionists, and the early California plein-air painters.

Deanna paints mostly en plein-air. She uses color harmony, light and shadow, texture And exciting brushwork to capture the essence of her subject matter, be it landscapes or still-life’s. Oils are her medium and on any given day, you may find her painting in the fresh air, under an open sky bringing her canvases to life.
