introspective, but always on the move.”
Viewers can witness this dynamic passion in Deane’s every
brushstroke. He attacks his canvases with broad strokes of
color, yet his finished works reveal subtleties and complexities
that draw in the viewer. Deane chooses to paint many different
moods and stimulate feelings such as joy, quiet reflection and
excitement. In other words, he leaves it up to the observer to
perceive the emotion and feeling of the artwork.
Inspired by his travels to China, Thailand, Italy and France,
Deane has pursued mixed media, incorporating antique papers,
found textural items, images and printed words to enhance the
spatial depth of his pieces. This allows him to evoke “a grounded
feeling of place,” he says.

Throughout his career, however, Deane has always been
influenced by the moods and palette of California. His work is
regularly featured in major galleries throughout the United
States and Europe and appears in private collections around the
world, including those of sports figures, politicians, movie stars,
authors, designers and even royalty.
Deane's work is included in the permanent collection of the
Uffizi Gallery and he was selected to have a solo exhibition at
the Accademia delle Arti del Disegno, which was Michelangelo’s
gallery. He also has an extensive list of corporate clients including
several high-profile Silicon Valley businesses. To view
