‘A Siren’s Kiss’ By Deborah Whistler

The pen and ink drawings of Deborah Whistler are sensuously elegant. Her latest body of work was inspired by Botticelli’s “The Birth of Venus,” a connection I thought of when I first looked at her art. Whistler, Spalding University’s program director of art and design, said she grew up knowing “it was in the imagination that all seemed possible.” That imagination, now in an adult, is full of creativity that expresses itself in alluring beauty.
