DeAun Olive

Artist DeAun Olive grew up in Wichita Falls, Texas, and now resides in Oklahoma City. She began painting to deal with grief. As a child she wanted to be an artist but didn’t pursue it, until much later. Life got in the way of a childhood goal but was never forgotten. She took art classes at Rose State College. She seriously began her art career and began a daily discipline of painting.

She belongs to the Paseo Artist Association, Mid Del Art Guild, Oklahoma Art Guild, Chisolm Trail Art Guild, and the Edmond Art Association and has served on boards of several guilds. She currently is a guest artist at Paseo Gallery One, and Gallery 123. Her work is also shown in several gift shops in the area. She has been awarded best of show, and judges’ choice in several competitions.

The body of her work is mostly abstract watercolor, both floral and landscape, pulling her experiences from her own travels and home to create happy places and feelings. She also paints in acrylic and
pastel, both soft and oil pastel. The goal of her work is to show the world as a beautiful experience, a moment away from life’s stresses. If someone smiles or relaxes a bit, she considers her art a success. A
happy artist creating happy art is the daily goal.
