Working with acrylic, ink, watercolour, collage and digital art, Deb’s style is spontaneous and diverse. Not one to be restricted by convention, Deb creates one-of-a-kind statement pieces of art, sometimes using her bare hands rather than brushes and tools.
Born and bred in Melbourne’s bayside, Deb completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts at The University of Ballarat and attained her Diploma in Education at LaTrobe University, Melbourne shortly afterwards.
A CAREER CHANGE WORTH WAITING FOR
Initially a side project while working as a primary school teacher, Deb’s adventurous personality has seen her business go from strength to strength while allowing her the flexibility so many working families crave.
“Becoming a mum in 2013 is my greatest accomplishment. It has been equally rewarding and challenging but has also given me the opportunity to reignite my passion for art and creativity while at home raising my two boys”.
WORKSHOPS AND COMMISSIONS
Now residing in Aspendale in Victoria, Deb creates interior commissions and shares her love of all things colourful with everyday people wanting to dip their toe into art, welcoming them into regular mixed media workshops in her Aspendale studio.
The newly renovated studio and gallery is open by appointment for viewings, workshops and art consultations.
Deb’s work is constantly evolving and she is rarely seen without a smudge of paint on her face or a brush in her hand.
Deb’s work has featured in some exciting partnerships with Jamie Durie and the Canvas Workshop, Alysa and Lysandra, Postcard Swimwear, American Flat, New York, Fat Mango, Commonfolk Collective, Create & Case and United Interiors.
