Alina has mostly painted with acrylic on canvas. She is a self-taught artist, was a member of the Katonah Museum Artists' Association, and has participated in many solo and group exhibits and art festivals in NY and Texas. She currently focuses on commissioned work.
She considers herself a contemporary impressionist with a strong preference for pointillism. Alina was inspired by the brilliant spring and fall colors of Westchester County, New York, where she lived for 37 years, and more currently by the Texas Hill Country. She was also fascinated with the fragile and diverse ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef. In Houston, Texas, she also started focusing on the vibrant energy of the distant galaxies and nebulae images captured by the Hubble telescope. Alina started her departure from impressionism paintings and used the galactic images to transition to an abstract expressionist style. In all her work, she continues to explore the hidden beauty in the natural environment.
Alina Deutsch was born in Bucharest, Romania and has lived in the United States for the last 45 years, mostly in Westchester County, New York. In addition to being both a successful electrical engineer and a cookbook translator and publisher, she enjoys painting and multi-media crafts. In this, she has been inspired by her mother, Estera Rogers, now 96, who has created beautiful oil paintings for many years. Both women have followed in the footsteps of their relative, Klein Hanni, who painted in her native town of Deva, in Transylvania, throughout her life. Alina has been creative for over 40 years but in 2009 she was given a new impetus. She retired from her engineering career and found a new outlet in her art. Suddenly she felt re-energized and confident, as if reconnecting with an old friend, her love of painting. She is now devoting her full-time to creative pursuits.
