Goody-give-away-winner September

By spotogspindel | October 2, 2009

The winner of the September Goody-give-away is Deirdra Doan! She is getting the blank journal in the snail-mail. Hopefully she will fill it with some of her fantastic artwork.


I met Deirdra at Artfest 2009 when we both attended L.K. Ludwig´s class on metal mesh together. She is such a sweet woman, who invited me to visit her home when I was traveling after the workshops. I spent Easter evening with her and her composer/musician husband John Doan. 

I have long been wanting to introduce her artwork to you, so now is a great opportunity! She paints romantic moods, she sings beautifully, she makes lovely dolls and intriguing mixed media artwork.  She also has the most beautiful shabby chic-home I think I´ve ever seen. Her house is just awesome, all because of her wonderful taste. And in case this wasn´t enough, she manages her husband´s tours, is in the process of making a documentary film, and she´s writing a children´s book about Nisse. And she teaches workshops at Art&Soul.

Deirdra has been such a support and such a friend for me since I met her, and I truly appreciate her friendship. Which means it was extra fun that she was this month´s winner 🙂

Here is some of her work:




Head on over to her site, where there is much more of her art.
