Deanna Christian has worked with colored pencil for over 50 years and says she learns something new with each piece she creates. She studied with colored pencil artist, Ann Kullberg and at Daniel Smith Artist Workshops in Washington state. There Deanna also learned to appreciate the art forms of the Pacific Northwest people-the Haida and Lummi. “I love the brilliance and transparency that can be create with colored pencil. Like light through stained glass the colors glow. I enjoy hearing people say, “THAT’s colored pencil?!”
