About the Artist

Deirdre Fox loved drawing and creating things as a kid, but a heavy dose of practicality (hers and her parents) won out when she went to college. Deirdre studied materials engineering, the chemistry, physics, and structures of materials at Northwestern University. Eventually, Diedre went back to school to learn more about the possibilities of drawing and other mediums the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. She concluded that approaching art from the point of view of process also meant investigating, learning and understanding how things work, as with science, yet with less methodological restriction.

Deirdre was awarded numerous grants, residencies, and was selected as a featured artist for Chicago Artists Month, a Ragdale Foundation Residency, and CAAPs grants.
