Debbie is a New Zealand artist – working from her studio (Bella Vista Studio) on the Kapiti Coast. She has successfully exhibited her artworks over the years in New Zealand and commissioned paintings for several private collections, which have been received favorably.

Debbie relies mostly on her observation and instinct when creating her artworks. These are mainly oil paintings on canvas or board. She has an ability to capture the essence of her subjects and, whilst her passion lies with portraiture – studying faces and the human form, she has created realistic artworks of many subjects that manage to have a special connection with their viewers.

Always looking for inspiring visuals and constantly humbled to see her works so well received and appreciated by others, Debbie will continue to show her viewers how she sees the world.
