Déa Self (b.1977, Bull Shoals, Arkansas) lives and works in South Fayetteville, Arkansas. She received her BFA from the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Working with oil paint on wood panels, she is inspired by the Ozark landscape and the plants that take over her house in the winter. Her paintings combine linear elements with the painterly, using both to investigate the conundrums of composition layer by layer.
