Debra Rowland – Painter
I’ve always loved drawing and painting, and to experiment with colour while exploring varied subject matter, is my idea of living the dream.
About the Artist
Coming from a family of Artisans with varying passions from artists to carpenters, master bakers to stained glass craftsmen, Debra’s love and appreciation of image, pattern and form manifested from a young age. She was originally born in England and spent her childhood and early married life in North Wales, she later moved with her family to Australia and again to Canada taking opportunities to expand her creative palette and subjects through cultural influences, teachings, traditions and landscapes from around the world.
Working as an Artist and Instructor for nearly 30 years with a B.A. (Hons) Illustration, Debra enjoys applying her traditional style to build new and creative techniques. Through this free spirited approach to her strict and traditional training, Debra creates a space for her students to find their true style whilst observing formal teaching techniques.
