Deanna Robles, Pottsgrove High School and Western Montgomery Career and Technology Center student in commercial art, sees the world differently.

And now others got a glimpse of her world at Goggleworks Center for the Arts in Reading, as their featured artist at a small reception held on Dec. 8, in Deanna’s honor.

Invited by Goggleworks board member Ed Terrell to showcase her “Inside Folk Art” work, Deanna was supported at her debut by family, friends, Goggleworks resident artist and mentor Sharon McGinley, and teachers.

Avid reader, able to play piano by ear, Deanna is autistic, yet expresses herself beautifully through her music and art.

Michelle MacLuckie, Pottsgrove School District’s Supervisor of Special Education notes, “Deanna is
a remarkable and talented young artist who seizes every opportunity to grow and learn.

"She is a kind individual whose unique and compassionate perspective is reflected in not only her art but in her every interaction. I am very proud to know her and can't wait to see what her future holds.”

“Deanna was very excited on her special day,” reported her father Peter Robles.

Deanna’s work is on display until Dec. 31.
