I have lived most of my life in the beautiful Dandenong ranges, which provides me with endless inspiration for my paintings. Starting with a blank canvas and transforming it into a beautiful piece of art is my passion. My work is mainly in acrylics, with a diverse range of birds, animals, landscapes and places.
Debra have lived most of my life in the beautiful Dandenong ranges, which provides her with endless inspiration for her paintings. Starting with a blank canvas and transforming it into a beautiful piece of art is her passion. She works is mainly in acrylics, focusing on realism, Debra’s art is a diverse range of birds, animals, land and seascapes, more recently travel places with interesting architecture. Debra uses mostly traditional processes, sketching in the initial outlines, using horizon lines and disappearing points for perspective, then her paintings are produced using color, shadows, highlights and fine detail, which is done by eye and how Debra envisage the subject to be.
For as long as Debra can remember, she has always felt the need to create, and as a young teenager Debra started out with oils and teaching herself with how to paint books. She been influenced by the old traditional masters striving for realism with a twist of vibrant colour and depth. Today Debra work mainly in acrylics, using a wide variety of painting mediums and techniques. Each piece is individually created with great care, paying careful attention to fine detail and creating depth with light and shadow.
Debra find beauty in every corner of the world and also in everyday life and especially in nature. If she can create a painting that sparks a memory or emotion, or even of a place you have once been or would like to go, or if it gives you tranquillity or peace, then her goal has been achieved.
