About the Artist

DeViney began her career as a painter in oils and acrylics. In recent years she has focused more on mixed media constructions, which frequently incorporate paintings and found elements built into three-dimensional, multimedia wall pieces and sculpture. DeViney likes to include objects, antiques and general detritus because “each item contains historical implications from its past lives, even when its history is not a particularly glorious or noble one. These items add implied age to my work, letting it join with history’s stream.”
