DeAna Autry of Ocean Springs leads a versatile life. Inspired by her passion for music and the visual arts, this mother of five and grandmother of three sings in multiple choirs plays the piano, paints, and makes jewelry.
Also a gallery consultant for The Pink Rooster/Gallery Garbo, she was born in South Dakota and lived there and in California before moving to Mississippi. These places, along with her travels here and abroad, have contributed to the creation of her watercolors and jewelry designs. Like her paintings, Autry’s jewelry reflects her love of intriguing localities, the splendor of music, and the majestic colors of the world. Her recent jewelry collection echoes her spirituality and features various religious medals.
Many of her works are available in the Gallery where Autry says her mission is to provide warm and friendly service and to make The Pink Rooster/Gallery Garbo the best it can be.
