awards judge


Deborah is a Canadian painter living on Vancouver Island on the West Coast of British Columbia. I grew up in Alberta and lived in England for many years before settling in BC. I am a signature member of the Federation of Canadian Artists and the American Artists Professional League and a Master in the Oil Painters of America.


I became a painter by way of being an observer –always noticing light and shadow, shapes, texture, composition and colour, and endeavoring to interpret those observations through painting has been a lifelong passion.

I am initially drawn to the light and shadow in the landscape and my intention is to be relatively faithful to the colour and light that nature so beautifully provides while experimenting and playing with the paint application. 

I find that striving to accomplish this goal never ceases to be fascinating and deeply fulfilling.
