Colorful Malaysia!

Just had a wonderful time in Malaysia over Thanksgiving and found a lot of inspiration. The sights are colorful, the food options are colorful, the sounds are colorful and even the smells are colorful!

Then it was off to Malacca/Melaka, a great little town steeped in the history of a great influx of various nationalities over the centuries.

The year of the horse is coming to a close soon. StudioDeanna_Malaysia11

Published by Studio Deanna Welcome! I’m Deanna, a metals & fiber artist creating sculptures and wall art installations. My work is very tactile, 2D & 3D textiles and often takes organic forms inspired by our natural planet. My international experiences have provided the opportunity to swim in the gorgeous tropical waters around Hawai’i, hiking in the rainforests of Far North Queensland, and the breathtaking beauty in Africa. Utilizing my custom-made steel tools, my favorite pieces to create are large-gauge wire crochet sculptures. My meticulously handcrafted designs will enrich your office, home, and outdoor living spaces. Currently I am dividing my time between the Tokyo Bay Area and Hawai’i and am open for commission art works.
