Ariana Deats was born in Northern California and after having moved around a bit landed in Las Vegas, NV.
She started her Art from her very beginning from the time she could hold a crayon. Her mother was not a believer in giving a child many toys so her imagination was her greatest tool, creating doll houses from cardboard boxes to drawing and cutting out her own paper dolls.
Having taken only a splattering of art classes in high school and a few others she is mainly self-taught.
She has been featured in The Studio in DTLV in the Arts district in Las Vegas, NV
Works also display in Jana’s RedRoom in the World Famous Arts Factory
Having done a smattering of small group shows here and there she has mainly sustained by selling to clients and local businesses in Las Vegas, NV and California with some high profile private clients.
Also running her own indie fashion brand The Odd Portrait a 90’s punk rock meets boho with inspiration from Alice in Wonderland and post-apocalyptic films. Everything designed and crafting everything by hand. She as well has gone through it all with running an indie fashion brand having the blood the tears the extream moments of joy and the freedom of working for yourself.
Promoting herself and her brand was not an easy task, but doing it for other people was something she always enjoyed. Meeting and getting to know the amazing community in Down Town Las Vegas it was just a natural next step and a deep passion to do this magazine and feature all these amazing and talented people.
