Deon Duncan commenced her training in the arts at a very young age, culminating with an MFA from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, with an emphasis in painting and theory. Convinced that the creative process of art making had a power beyond making objects for display, Deon began working in inner-city Chicago painting murals with “at risk” youth to find ways to reconnect them to society at large.As a volunteer for the Peace Corps, Deon worked within the Ecuadorian Correctional Facilities, using the same educational framework of painting murals that she had learned in Chicago. Moving deeper into the Ecuadorian jungles, and during the decade that she lived in the Amazon River Basin, Deon began making art concerned with plant and animal ecosystems; she won an environmental Earth Watch grant to study other ecosystems in the Pantanal in Brazil, and exhibited throughout South America promoting an awareness of conservation.

In 2007 Deon returned to Utah and family, where she discovered her greatest talent and passion to be sculpture. She is interested primarily in figurative sculpture at present. She shares a studio with several nationally recognized sculptors in Alpine, Utah, pursuing the creative impulse as well as public monuments and portraiture in bronze.
