Ashburn, Virginia, USA
Her work draws from edgy contemporary styles as well as classic compositions, and is influenced by the modern masters of photorealism and Trompe L’Oeil. She has combined her passion, intellect and solid technique to create a genuinely original body of work. She works primarily in acrylics and most of her show pieces are still lifes and urban landscapes.
To achieve extreme detail, she uses magnifying lenses while applying the paint. Unlike traditional photorealists who often paint objects larger than life, on vast substrates, many of Debra’s paintings are miniature in size. They fit in the palm of your hand, and yet they can be magnified several times over before losing their tightly rendered appearance.
The smaller paintings appeal to Debra because viewers naturally feel compelled to look closer, even view the art through a magnifier. Collectors are intrigued by the level of detail contained in such a compact space. The experience for the patron is much more interactive and intimate.
