• Deanne Kroll

    Creativity spilled into all aspects of Kroll’s life from an early age in Minnesota. Soon after graduating from the 4-year program at the Atelier LeSueur in Excelsior, Minnesota, Deanne opened a studio in the Twin Cities. Health issues led her to seek alternative methods of healing. Kroll’s journey included Qigong and meditation which led her to become a Qigong Master Healer. This spiritual path eventually started to permeate into her artwork, giving it a more energetic presence. Kroll traveled extensively to plein air paint nationwide and internationally. She has taught classes and showed her artwork extensively in the Midwest in galleries and privately. Deanne also won numerous awards, including The PleinAir Salon May 2022 Honorable Mention, American Artist 60th  anniversary art competition third place 1997. Deanne mainly creates oil paintings from her studio in Santa Fe, NM. When someone views her art, it can evoke a sense of wholeness and a reminder to connect more with self and nature.
