Deb's studio is in Barrie, Ontario, but as a Penetanguishene native, she always finds inspiration in the Georgian Bay landscape. Her painting style ranges from contemporary to traditional impressionism.
Her work has been likened to the Canadian Group of Seven and Deb admits that Casson and Jackson are two of her favorite painters. Living and painting in the Georgian Bay region, where they painted, has a definite influence on her landscape subjects and her style choice.
Deb has exhibited in well-known shows such as Toronto Art Expo, Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition at Nathan Phillips Square, as well as many summer outdoor art festivals, including those in Markham, Waterloo, Collingwood and Toronto. Her work is found in private collections in Ireland, France, Sierra Leone, The Netherlands, Greece, The United States, and across Canada.
Deb is involved in the local artist community, offers classes and workshops, and participates in organized art events.
