Deane (Beesley) Christiansen is a self-taught artist, illustrator, designer and painter living in beautiful Alberta, Canada. Deane’s creative story started early as a child. She grew up surrounded by creative influences, mainly her Mom and Gramma. They taught her how to sew, crochet, paint and draw (especially in her mom’s cookbooks!). She loved learning everything. Deane has spent nearly 25 years in the sewing and quilting industry. It was only few years ago, when she took a leap of faith and sold her quilt shop and immersed herself into becoming a full-time artist. That has since spun her into a world of licensing her artwork across a multitude of products and to open her own print studio. Deane has a unique, modernized and vintage style with a whimsical twist. Her collections and artwork are colorful, trendy, current and full of delightful critters and hand drawn lettering. Every piece she makes is created from the heart in the hopes of making someone smile.
