Introduction Deanne Fortnam is a Master Decorative Artist in the Society of Decorative Painters and is a popular artist, author and teacher. She has taught throughout the United States and internationally. Deanne is a native of New England and still lives in her hometown, Nashua, New Hampshire with her husband Douglas. She is an avid birder and photographer. Deanne is a dedicated gardener and spends most of her summers outside with her flowers. She’s been crafting her beautifully composed perennial borders on their Nashua property since 1978 and applies her extensive knowledge of the principals of color and composition to their design. Deanne treats the gardens like a canvas and considers the color and texture of the plants to be her ‘pigments’. “The gardens are a living and ever changing composition to be enjoyed in all seasons.”
