Born in Chicago, Illinois, DeAnn L. Prosia has been creating and selling art works since 1990. She received her education at Northern Illinois University and the Art Institute of Chicago, but her interest in printmaking came later. Until 2006 her efforts mostly concentrated on etchings. It was not until she was living in Germany (December 2006 – October 2009) when she decided to use her love of drawing and her interest in color to experiment with watercolors. Through a lot of experimentation and the influence of the European art scene she developed a style that is quite opposite of the tightly knit feeling that her etchings offer. Now she splits her time between black and white and color.
DeAnn currently lives and works in New Jersey.
