April Deacon's Profile
Discarded, damaged, neglected, or forgotten.
These are the objects I am drawn to. Items once treasured by someone litter the shelves of antique stores and exist in droves at flea markets. My desire is to resurrect forgotten memories through these pieces. Discarded photographs, textiles, jewelry findings and more, take on new life with a fresh coat of paint. I want to create a longing for these once undesired objects.
I hold a BFA and an MA in painting. I live in Southern Ohio with my husband and two daughters, who keep me eternally inspired.
