DeAna Autry of Ocean Springs leads
a versatile life. Inspired by her passion
for music and the visual arts,
this mother of five and grandmother of
four, plays the piano, paints, and makes
jewelry. Also a consultant at
The Pink Rooster/Gallery Garbo,
she was born in South Dakota and lived
there and in California before moving to Mississippi. These places, along with her
travels here and abroad, have contributed
to the creation of her watercolors and jewelry designs. Like her paintings, Autry's jewelry
reflects her love of intriguing localities, the splendor of music, and the majestic colors of
the world. Her jewelry collection echoes her spirituality and features various religious medals, old coins, and at times, a bit of the eclectic.
Many of her works are available in the
Gallery. Autry says her mission is to make
unique, meaningful jewelry pieces.
