Lamya Deeb is an award-winning plein air landscape artist working in oil and pastel. Her aim is to capture the unique essence and beauty of a moment and place.
Born in the U.S., Lamya Deeb grew up in Beirut, Lebanon, witnessing that country’s civil war during her teenage years. Extensive travels in Europe and the Middle East brought her in contact with the great art and scenic beauty of those areas.
With a BFA from Colorado State University, and a working background in illustration and design, Lamya has painted the landscape “en plein air” since 2006, studying the genre with such artists as Jake Gaedtke, Elizabeth Mowry, John Taft, Stephen Datz, Chuck Ceraso, Lorenzo Chavez and Marc Hanson.
In 2014, Lamya expanded her subjects to include still-life arrangements. As in landscape painting, she enjoys capturing the live essence of the objects and the light that illuminates them. Her instructors in the still-life genre have included Elizabeth Robbins, Jeff Legg and Rey Ford.
Lamya currently lives and paints in Longmont, Colorado, and is an associate member of: Plein Air Artists Colorado, Outdoor Painters Society, Pastel Society of Colorado, Laguna Plein Air Painters Association, Oil Painters of America, and the American Impressionist Society.
Her work can be found at Mary Williams Fine Arts in Boulder, CO and Osmosis Art Gallery in Niwot, CO.
