Deborah has traveled widely to explore various painting locations ranging from western to eastern Canada, the USA and abroad to Europe and Central America. The diverse scenery she has encountered from location to location has heightened her sense of landscape formation, colours and patterns. She combines elements of abstraction and traditional realism in her "enplein air" oil sketches and studio paintings. With respect to the spiritual aspect of her work, the simplicity of the landscape displays a great power. "It commands respect for nature, exposing how insignificant I am - a small integral part of the environment."
Artist Statement: Morning Row was inspired while kayaking in one of our beautiful lakes! It was a gorgeous, misty early morning and an absolute pleasure to be out kayaking on a lake with stillness and the loons calling. This fisherman and rowboat silently appeared out of the mist. We didn’t truly acknowledge each other as we were both taking that moment to appreciate the serenity of Mother Nature.
