Deena S. Ball


Deena S. Ball is a nationally renowned landscape painter, known for her innovative use of watercolors in combination with textured ground and specialized surfaces. The majority of her work is painted en Plein Air or derived from sketches and observations while she was immersed in nature. She strives to create simple expressive paintings inspired by nature, capturing a moment in time and striking an emotional chord with the viewer.

After thirty five years of painting in the beautiful Brandywine Valley of Pennsylvania, she is excited to return to Maine and start painting scenes from the interior mountains to the coast of Maine.  She holds a BA in Art History and Studio Art from Colby College in Waterville, Maine and continued her studies at Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Art and Tyler School of Art.

An active teaching artist for both adults and children, she is regularly invited to conduct workshops and presentations for artist’s organizations. Recent presentations include ones for the Philadelphia Watercolor Society, Onodaga Art Society and Salem County Art Society. She teaches workshops and classes on zoom for art organizations across the nation including RiverArts in Maryland, Mendocino Art Center in California, Community Art Center and Wayne Art Center in Pennsylvania, and Artascope in Maine.

Deena is a past president of the Philadelphia Water Color Society, co-founder and Artistic Director of the non-profit LandArt Events, a signature member of Philadelphia Watercolor Society, Baltimore Watercolor Society, Pennsylvania Watercolor Society, and is a Pennsylvania Guild Master Craftsman.

Her paintings are exhibited throughout the Northeast and can be found in “Watercolor Artist” and several annual publications of “Splash.”
