Opera diva Jessye Norman, Mirium Weinstein of Miramax Films, Ethel Kennedy’s sister, Georgiana Terrien and heiresses Debbie Simon and Shermane Billingsley have enhanced their homes with murals and custom designs created by Kathleen Deyo. On the commercial front, Kathleen writes and illustrates children’s books, licenses her design and sells paintings to a growing clientele. Her hand painted silk scarves and mens pocket squares can be ordered on this web site.

So, welcome to my on-line portfolio.  And thanks!


How Kathleen Works With Designers and Clients



I begin with an empty space in a room or a piece of furniture and do a sketch like the design on the drawer below and usually two more sample paintings for the client. Then I listen carefully to their comments and incorporate their feedback into the finished piece.
