About

I am an artist, graphic designer, and animal lover. I focus on realistic portraits and surrealistic art.

My name is Deanna Lassiter.

I became interested in art when I was in middle school and my passion grew when I was in high school. I have worked with all kinds of media in both 2D and 3D. My focus is currently on the traditional medium of charcoal drawing and the contemporary medium of digital painting. I graduated magna cum laude from the University of North Georgia with a Bachelor’s degree in Art with a concentration in Graphic Design.

Aside from my love of art, I also ride a motorcycle, have three cats, and love to be active. I enjoy weightlifting, hiking and mountain biking. When I am not participating in one of those activities, you can probably find me curled up with a book or watching a documentary.
