Art critic Brian Sherwin, Editor of The Art Edge, commented on Deirdre's paintings. Sherwin said,

    "Artist Deirdre Shibano's plein air paintings are marked by an alluring sense of calm. Her work invites viewers to take a step back in order to appreciate the intrinsic beauty of nature. This wonderful sense of calm is carried over when Deirdre explores the human figure -- her figure paintings offer a point of introspection. Her body of work is simply a joy to observe."

    Well known for her beautiful Landscapes paintings in plein-air, Deirdre Shibano is also an award-winning artist, specializing in portraiture and figurative work.  Her work is in private collections across the United States, and abroad. 
Shibano is passionate about the  process of painting, whether outdoors, in plein-air, with just the sounds and scents of nature, or working with clients on developing a commissioned portrait, or figurative piece... it is always the “Magic” of paint that inspires her!  Shibano notes,  “the great thing about painting...is that you never get bored...Always learning and continuing to grow  in methods, techniques and making a statement is what is most important...I find the human condition, and our environment equally exhilarating and inspiring...
