Deann Stein Hasinoff is an abstract artist using apps to create her work. After developing severe sensitivities, Stein Hasinoff was unable to continue with traditional art materials and began to explore digital art making. She draws inspiration for her work from life’s challenges, originally influenced by her work with adults with brain injury and then by her own experiences in developing and living with chronic illness. Inspired by nature near her home, she also explores photography and abstraction. Stein Hasinoff’s formal education is in Speech Language Pathology, receiving her Master’s degree from the University of Alberta in 1999. She began taking community art classes in 2008. Stein Hasinoff received her Certificate in Visual Arts with Distinction from the Faculty of Extension at the University of Alberta in 2018.
