Deborah Meyer, Artist and Instructor
Working predominantly in acrylic and oil, Meyer is a realist painter, taking elements of nature and exploring the abstract character of them. Her method of work involves layering multiple applications of glazes to achieve a depth and complexity in the style of the old masters. She employs contrasting texture and tones as well as rich, vibrant color to portray images of the world as she sees it. She began the study of painting as an art major in the early seventies and has enjoyed a career in the creative arts including advertising and interior design. Deb has been painting passionately and consistently since 1998.
