Deanna Miesch

1991 University of Texas at Austin, BFA Studio Art

1996 The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Master of Arts in Art Therapy Art has always been in my life.

I work in a variety of mediums, which has served my 21 year career as an Art Therapist: multiple mediums foster creative flexibility while adapting to my clients’ needs. I am the founder of Art Therapy Austin ( based in Austin, Texas.

I was born in Houston, Texas, and lived in Algiers, Algeria until the age of four. As a young child, I was raised in New Orleans, Louisiana and then returned to Texas in my teens. After four years in Chicago, Illinois for graduate school, I now live in Austin, Texas, with my husband and my “perpetual muse” of a daughter.

Making art is a real and tangible experience for me. My art process reflects a quest for understanding concepts, ideas, or history; and contemplates what is possible or possibly coming in the future. This work is my own therapy, coalescing disparate elements of life that are contained within the greater constructs of evolution and existence.

I use conventional film and a Hasselblad medium format camera: appreciating and enjoying the uniqueness, risk, and beauty of the analog image created. Photographic manipulations seen in my work, such as multiple exposures and cropping, are made within the camera to expand or contract moments in time. There are no digital manipulations of these images.

In my photography, use of double and triple exposures explore multi-dimensional perspectives: this perspective seems to affect time and space, literally. These explorations relate to Holographic Paradigm models- the concept that within even the most minuscule part lives the whole: an apt analogy for the universe..
