Debra Reed

I am primarily an Acrylic based Artist, always had a passion for Art from very young. I can remember back around 6 years old my Dad building me a Chaulk board Easel, so I could doodle around and playfully draw pictures.

Throughout school years, I experimented with sketching in Pencil, charcoal doing mainly Portraits and Landscapes, water colours and Boutique. Some of my Art was displayed and in Art Competitions at the Local Agricultral Fairs. I worked with Leather over the years, creating Leather topped stools – with designs I had skethched and tooled into the leather and subsequently dyed. Many donated to silent auctions and finding homes with friends and family.

As my life evolved after raising a family of three beautiful kids, I found myself with time and still the yearning to paint. I took an evening paint class with a Local Artist and that set the fever in me. In that first year I painted 80 paintings – majority selling and finding their home. My Signature Paintings are Primarily Acrylic Based – with Thermoplastic on Au Premier Coup and many Paintings are now collected / displayed in Private homes Internationally. Some of my paintings can now be seen in many Local Gallery shows – Thornbury Library, and Frames by Verne in Kitchener, Flesherton Museum, Lion Head – Bruce Peninsula Art Show –  as well on display and for sale in The Great Canadian Solid Wood Furniture Company in Orangeville, Ontario. Commissioned Paintings are always extra special to complete – whether it’s a painting of your home / farm setting and or  – Pet Portraits to scenes of Georgian Bay at Sunset with seagulls flying high. My paintings are signed in my Maiden name to Honour my Mum and Dad.

Some of my work can be seen on my Web Page:

I always love to hear feedback, and if you have any questions, or inquiries re commissions, group or one on one paint sessions I can be reached through email at:

My favourite Quote is – Dream Big and always keep a place in your heart for dreams to grow.

Last but not least – when you are buying from an Artist, you buy not just a piece of Art – a painting – you buy moments of the Artists Life and so much more. You are supporting your neighbour – a friend – a professional, a community, a small business and making it possible to bring the Art to life in our Community and your Home.

 

Thank you Deb – The Artist
