Deena Haynes is an artist living in Aptos, California. She has been creating and selling art for almost 15 years and is fascinated with developing multiple layers while combining traditional art materials with digital images. Whether the work is abstract or representational, an iconic or grid composition, photographs often become the underprint or overprint in layers of acrylic paint, ink, graphite and/or collage materials.
She finds herself flowing between paint and the computer, scanner and wax, photographic and gel mediums. Her work is often exploring juxtapositions or seeming dichotomies - the hidden and revealed, the obvious and mystery, the rhythm and stillness, or the ancient and contemporary.
She has exhibited her work in New York state, San Francisco and Santa Cruz, California. Her art work is in various private collections on the west coast.
