The ordinary arts we practice every day at home are of more importance to the soul than their simplicity might suggest ~ Sir Thomas Moore ~

hOMe is where the heART is …


I am an intuitive artist who loves working with and exploring a variety of mediums. Combining my love of painting and writing , I start most paintings by lightly jotting down thoughts on the paper/canvas in pencil.  My paintings are filled with symbolic and visionary messages of love, wisdom and reflection, the words written underneath the multiple layers of paint, now forever intertwined . . .  a visual poetry. Subjects range from birds to wise, intuitive women with  contrasts of vibrant colours and ethereal washes. 

A dream seeker, gratitude finder, snail mail sender, tea drinking, tree hugger, I want my artwork to give the viewer a peek into my life ... earthy, peaceful, bohemian, authentic, multi-layered, joy filled and full of whimsy.

Nature is my inspiration, and when I'm not creating in my studio, I can be found on long walks either in the woods or along beautiful Lake Ontario camera in hand, taking pictures and enjoying all 4 gorgeous Seasons. I often feel I am walking a painting into existence as so many of my painting ideas come from these mindful, meditative walks. 

Sparrows play a continuous role in my life and therefore, my artwork. You can read more on my "Sparrow" page.

Now in my 60's, I feel truly blessed at this stage of my life to be able to do what I am so passionate about.
I put my heart and soul into each piece of work I create ... I hope it touches yours xo
love & peace,
♥ Deb

Most of the artwork I show is available for sale as an original. Prints can be found on my Etsy shop, link is on the sidebar of blog. I post (usually) daily on my Instagram account where I show new work and where my art can be found. The link to my IG is also on my blog sidebar. 

If you are a brick & mortar retail store interested in carrying my work,  or to simply say hello I look forward to hearing from you.

Have a wonderful day.
