Hey Gorgeous! I'm Deb, and I'm so glad you're here!
First of all, I almost exclusively paint with watercolor. I adore the light and transparency you see in watercolor. I also love that it has a bit of a mind of it's own... just like me, lol, and I really love the challenge of pitting my will against it's. Balancing what I have in my head against what the paint wants to do.
But why do I paint the things that I paint?
Well, I am a lover of the unusual and love finding beauty in the unexpected. AND, I am fascinated by nature and the world around us!
I really enjoy painting nature in unexpected ways, putting the focus on the subject and hilighting what makes it beautiful.
Wanna get a little more personal... scroll down to read about how I am passionate in my belief that we should be our true selves, fearlessly and unapologetically and how I fought my way out of a vanilla life!
And just so you know, my art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
THIS IS ME!
I am fearless. • I am a self-proclaimed adrenaline junkie. • I am an eternal optimist. • I value kindness above most all else. • I believe in finding the good in everyone and everything, even if we have to search for it.
I love me… but it wasn’t always that way.
I used to try to be what I thought I should be. What others expected me to be. I loved playing a role and not making waves.
What’s funny is that I was not this way when I was younger. Somewhere in my mid-20s I lost my way. I don’t know what triggered it, but I forgot how to be ME, exactly as I am. I forgot how to love ME, for exactly who I was. I was not truly happy and I could never figure out why.
As I turned 50 though, everything changed. Most people bemoan the mid-life thing, and there are studies that say the 50s are when people are least happy, but I don’t understand that, lol, turning 50 was like a wake-up call for me.
I think I just started to feel my mortality. I realized that life is damn short and I should not live one more minute of it being someone I’m not. Not one minute without adoring myself, all parts of myself, even the not perfect parts. Take away my occasional lazy tendency and you take away my spontaneity and a good portion of my creativity and ingenuity!
I decided to embrace the real me!
If I love wearing all black and having purple hair and arms covered in tattoos, then dammit, that’s what I should do!
I have to tell you, I’m honestly the happiest I’ve been in my whole fucking life!
It’s still hard at times, the fear of being judged is strong, but I’m embracing the mantra “If you don’t like it, go away” :D
This realization not only changed my life, but it also changed my art completely! I’m still on a creative journey, playing and exploring, but I feel a freedom in my art that I never felt before!
BE BOLD, BE FEARLESS, BE YOU
I’d like to take this space to advocate for our right to be exactly who we are; boldly, proudly, and unapologetically.
I spent many years being what I though others wanted me to be or what I thought I “should be”.
I don’t want a single other person to have to go through this. Do not sacrifice your true happiness, your joy, your life, trying to be someone other than exactly who you are!
Life is way too short to waste one more minute trying to please others.
Say to yourself: This is me! If they don’t like it, that’s fine, I don’t need their approval. I love myself and that’s all that matters!
Never be afraid to be the real you! Any criticism or judgment will only come from people who you are not aligned with or who don’t genuinely love you. You don’t have to keep those people in your life. If they are family, remember, you are not obligated to respond or even communicate with them. They do not have power over you!
It’s hard to be honest with yourself about who you really are! I'm here for you, I've been through it, I'm still working on it.
I am absolutely open to chatting about this with anyone who needs it. Just shoot me a quick email, I’m here for you!
