Debra Dickson

Ferntree Gully Australia

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.

About Debra Dickson

For as long as I can remember, I have always felt the need to create, and as a young teenager I started out with oils and teaching myself with how to paint books. I have been influenced by the old traditional masters striving for realism with a twist of vibrant colour and depth. Today I 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.
I find beauty in every corner of the world and also in everyday life and especially in nature. If I 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 my goal has been achieved.
Over the years I have painted purely for my own satisfaction and kept it privately to myself. In 2002 I decided to enter a section of the royal Melbourne show, my piece won 1st prize and I didn’t feel the need to enter in anything again. I have always painted private commissions for customers by word of mouth, and it is only in the last 12 months that I have decided to show my work both online and via display at Sherbrooke gallery. A very traumatic time in my life followed by a life threatening illness prompted me to make dramatic changes and re-evaluate my path in life. So now here I am, following my passion and sharing it with you.
