Deanna Fligg grew up in Port Moody, B.C. and now creates in her home studio in Coquitlam, B.C. She has completed certificates in Fine Arts (Kwantlen 2006), Interior Design (BCIT 2008) and Floral Design (Maureen Sullivan Floral Design School 2013). Deanna primarily paints in acrylic; however, photography, illustration, watercolour/ink, and jewelry are also very much a part of her artistic lifestyle.
Having grown up with a beautiful garden, most of her inspirations are derived from the organisms that have a daily impact on us. Depending on the type of artwork, they can combine creatures, flora, and environmental elements.
Creativity has always been in her blood, but it wasn’t until 2012, after a 6-year break, that she decided to pick up a paint brush and start to paint again. That year was a boost of confidence and since then she has participated in over a dozen markets and several shows, including a group exhibition in New York City. Over the years Deanna’s style of painting has continued to develop, now being most well known for her stylized bee paintings. She continues to advocate for all pollinators and strives to tell their stories in her artwork.
