If you need anything made of wood, go to Bob Deever. I searched online for a sleek, modern style cherry vase and could not find one. I contacted Mr. Deever and he agreed to do a custom design. The process was a joy. He was very responsive, able to answer all my questions and executed the most beautifully crafted cherry vase. We could not be more pleased with the process or the result. The piece is so beautiful it could be in a museum. And he is too humble about the quality.

As a commercial artist, I endeavor to look at a variety of different artistic mediums. Catharine Deever sees shapes and moods, expresses them with a vibrant swath of colors. She has the ability to initially grab a viewer with a wide pallet of hues. She then draws her audience into exploring the scenes, which she has very carefully selected. She sees what many might view as mundane. Transforming the image into a visual experience, leaving the viewer wanting more. It is obvious that Catharine’s vision, has required many painstaking years to hone, the right feel, mood and expression. Each one of her pieces is a visual journey into her love of color, shape and emotion.

I was blessed one day to see Catharine and River Dee Designs on LinkedIn. I get a daily pleasure to see the beautiful and inspiring art that she creates. The stories that go with each piece of art has meaning and insight. It makes you think about what it means to you and also what it can mean to everyone else. Her art is truly inspirational and meaningful. What she can create from a photograph is amazing, even more amazing is some of the photos are 50+ years old. I highly recommend anyone reading this to go to there website and see the amazing art that they create.
