Debra Lee

I can’t remember a time I wasn’t drawing. I have just added to my skills and knowledge along the way. What you see is a culmination of a lifetime of expressing and interpreting my life through my art.

My paintings begin by intuitively creating an abstract composition using fluid acrylics in layers. Texturizing each layer with a different color and objects; scrapers, sponges, cards, stencils or lace and fabrics. I will then “live with the painting” until I see images in it that start to compose into objects or animals. I refine the images as they ‘speak’ to me and I feel there is a symbolic story being told.

It always amazes me how each viewer will interpret the painting in their own individual way. There have always been two things that I have found comfort in since I was a small child, drawing and animals. I guess it was inevitable that the two would merge in my life and make me an artist that finds inspiration from nature and animals.
