Kecia Deveney is a published mixed media artist, instructor and world traveler, living at the Jersey Shore. As a Mixed Media Artist, her eclectic style can be seen in fabric and textiles, jewelry design, sculpture-work and painting.
Creating is pivotal to Kecia and becomes, for her, art therapy. Her imagination comes to life and allows her temporary reprieve from her role as a full time caregiver. Scouring flea markets, long forgotten treasures inspired her to transform them into something new, exciting and distinctive. Her work is about ingenuity and playfulness.
As an educator, it is important to Kecia to teach her students to look beyond being perfect, to be more involved in the ongoing process of creating and leave insecurities behind. “Embrace the process, not the outcome” is her favorite mantra to repeat in class; with enhancing confidence being the ultimate achievement. Kecia’s workshops are taught through out the United States and also at international venues as well. She's been published in books and national art magazines.
