Deona shares her world of whim through colorful illustration style paintings. Each piece tells a story of peace, unity and the wonders of nature.
Deona Fish started Sleepy Little Dreams Studio in 2008 , the year she became a mother to her son Che. Her days at home as a new mom gave her time to escape with her paint brushes and fly into her dream world. Inspiration was plentiful from the simple days in a little cabin in Sandy Mush, Western North Carolina. Dirt roads, rolling hills, broken barns and grazing cows were the perfect setting for the beginning of her art journey. Creating a whimsical dreamy world that unfolds in colors and simplistic design. Each new painting adds a new chapter to the evergrowing land of "Sleepy Little Dreams". Many of the works are custom framed using architectural salvaged materials, old barn wood, turn of the century door panels and antique ceiling tiles. Her partner Craig creates the frames that perfectly resonates with the nostalgia of each piece. Over the past 10 years Deona has become a local and regional favorite to art collectors, designers and art lovers.
