Exhibition

Primarily self-taught, Deb Peterson has been creative since early childhood. Her interest lies in nature and the medium she chooses most is acrylic. Deb is captivated with how paint flows and moves on a canvas, and she uses a variety of tools to manipulate, layer, scrape, smudge and blend the paint. Her preference has become large canvas panels and her goal is to provoke feelings and emotions through colour, shape, and texture. Many of her paintings are abstract, resembling the flow of the natural world. When Deb is not teaching children, she finds herself drawn to painting during her spare time. “How I begin a painting is often unknown. I have an idea of the natural world in mind, but the joy for me is being inspired by the flow and movement of the paint. I choose colours that complement each other, place them onto a canvas, manipulate the paint with different tools and then I step back to find inspiration. The flow of paint reminds me of nature: beautiful, unpredictable, and ever changing. I feel that being creative is essential to the human spirit.”
