sylph7sky's Profile Picture
Deanna Bach-Talsma
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Fantasy artist Deanna Bach-Talsma was born September 8, 1975 in Owen Sound, ON, Canada. She grew up in Strathroy, Ontario, where she won a first place ribbon in a multi school art show for a finger painting, and from then on was hooked on art. Today she lives in Trenton, Ontario with her husband Jeremy and their one child. Deanna is an entirely self-taught artist. She attributes her artistic learning to curiosity, her father, a landscape artist, as well as many encouraging schoolteachers and friends along the way.

Deanna paints mostly in watercolour as she finds it the perfect medium for her to express her faeries and other ethereal creatures. Deanna is inspired by the nature all around her, be it the cotton ball clouds, a dark forest, or the sun kissed beach. She started out her career painting the subtle magic of wildlife animals in oil and acrylic and progressed to the outright fantastical with watercolour faeries and mythical creatures. Deanna finds painting faeries to be especially fulfilling as the possibilities are only limited to the imagination, and she finds the sheer magic and beauty of faeries to be positively addictive.
I am currently in a contest with a slew of other fantasy artists vying for the coveted prize of a licensing contract with well known fantasy artist Selina Fenech.
Winning such a prize would be an immediate boost to any artist, and one I would love to win! My artwork would then be available on a wide selection of quality merchandise and I would be among some of the top in the field.
I am not a stranger to Selina's contests, I actually won her 2011 art contest for my painting "Gossip" and the theme given of "How fairies spend their time". And I received an honorable mention in her 2010 art contest for my painting "Under the Sea".

This is where I need help. I need votes! It is really easy to vote, just follow the link ...… ...and click the box with my name and one other (if you wish) and voila! done! easy peasy. :) and I will be very grateful for any and every vote!!!! Voting goes until the end of May, where the top five move on to a new voting round, with a winner picked by popular vote from that lot.

Thank you for your help!!! :)

here is the link again...…
