Art Exhibit: Vicki Deutsch: Through Nov. Local artist and children’s book illustrator. “I’m a Minnesota girl who at age four began drawing small fairies and princess figures in the blank pages of printed books. As a teenager, I kept 8” x 12” drawing tablets in which I drew what I saw and imagined. My drawings began to focus on hands, feet and heads, which I continuously drew in small booklets. When drawing I preferred pencil and ink pen, and when painting I preferred acrylic as my main medium. My medium has changed over the years to digital (computer) art,” said Deutsch.
