"Male Figure I"
Debra's simplistic, yet energetic sweeping marks really show the confidence in her mark-making abilities. A muted colour palette is all that is required to make these mixed media paintings truly iconic. Her unique style captures the true essence of her subject matter be it figurative or of a landscape aspect. She pairs down nature to it's most simple elements...yet there is so much energy and movement that you can feel a sense of flow and fluidity.
Cleverly collaged elements add a hint of shadow or light in respective areas which help to build depth into the composition. Debra's paintings, more often than not, are in large format making incredibly bold statements and leaving just as big a lasting impression in the viewers minds' eye!
