Meet the Artists

Ranja v Dean

Ranja’s deep connection with the four-legged kingdom, the magic of life, and many a night adventuring beneath the stars inspires much of her art. 

You’ll see her bronzes and both giclee and metal prints of her graphite drawings. Her artistry extends to the beautiful grounds that surround the gallery, as well as the gardens guests visit on our 2-hour Dean Family Farm and Art Studios tours.

Jeffrey H Dean

Jeff has been making sculpture and wall art in clay, wood, bronze, stone, and steel since the late ’70s. His current focus is on creating significant, focal point wood and metal wall art.

He makes this metal wall decor using innovative techniques he has developed over the last 30 years. His metal wall art is available as both originals and metal photo prints.

Jeff also spends much of his time creating commissioned artworks for clients across the country.

‘Nor ‘easter,’ one of his works of public art, can be seen in the Homer Volunteer Fire Hall’s Pocket Park on East Pioneer Avenue.

M'fanwy Dean

M’fanwy is an artist and graphic designer.

She uses tiny chisels to hand-carve intricate designs into painted wood panels, which are available in the gallery both as originals and as prints on maple. She has become adept at carving her artwork using both her right and left hands.

M’fanwy bases many of her carvings on animals commonly found in Alaskan art. Her art has been published in international juried art annuals for imaginative realism and featured in galleries across the state.

In addition to The Dean Gallery, you can find her work locally at both Ptarmigan Arts on Pioneer Avenue and at High Tides Art on the Homer Spit.

You can find her work online as well.
