|I have drawn and painted since childhood. It is simply what I like to do best. I never set out to become "an artist", but it has become my way of making a living. I paint on a daily basis in my studio, or when it’s warm enough, on location. Painting on the spot is the most fun because it’s all right there - the smells, the noise, the shifting light, the bugs, the grass tickling my ankles, and you’ve got to capture it before it changes or disappears.|
Deborah spent her summers on the southern part of Lake Champlain at Larrabee’s Point. She returned to the area permanently after graduating from Vassar College, where she majored in History and also studied Fine Art. After teaching art and history for several years, she began painting full-time. She now lives near Caspian Lake in Greensboro, Vermont with her husband, sons, horses, sheep and chickens.
Deborah paints on D’Arches hot press 140lb. paper, which is very smooth, and allows for repeated washes and detail. She works on several paintings at once, and finishes three to six paintings a week, depending on the size.
This artist resides in Greensboro.
