Abstract paintings, modern paintings, fluid paintings, geometric paintings, textured paintings, mixed media paintings, oil paintings, acrylic paintings, multi panel art, giclee canvas prints, original artwork.

My paintings are modern, contemporary, joyful, full of life, bold color and movement. Some have representational elements and some are fully abstract. Some are lighthearted and some profound. I have many painting techniques that I have developed though the years. My fluid paintings are filled with tiny details that need to be seen close-up, so I take a lot of close-up photos. They have a very imposing presence in person. My spirituality and my interest in the eternal nature of life drive all my creative endeavors. You can see this in many of my paintings and their titles.

My art has evolved in a very interesting ways through many years of art-making. Hundreds of my paintings hang in homes and businesses all around the world. My paintings have been published many times in brochures and publications for symposiums and other academic events. This usually comes about because my image evokes something related to the spirit of the endeavor. Often people in business will want one of my images as inspiration in the workplace, often involving themes such as creativity, a positive forward-looking spirit, a new beginning. One of my paintings was used for the cover of a college textbook. My paintings played a role in the 2007 movie "Universal Signs" in which the leading man was a painter.

I maintain a private studio in our home in Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. Selling online provides me with a great amount of freedom and allows me to keep my prices very affordable. It also provides me the creative artistic freedom that is necessary to produce the art that I produce. My creative processes are very personal.

And finally the masterpiece is completed! I can not think of one way that I would have improved upon the process of communicating with the artist, to create the exact piece that I envisioned. Sally was truly remarkable at reverse engineering from the space I had available to get me EXACTLY what I envisioned, based on the style of her earlier work. She is truly an incredible artist, but an even more amazing individual. The triptych was delivered across the country to our home and arrived in perfect condition. Her care in the packaging and wrapping -- prior to shipping was evident, that she is profoundly interested in delivering the goods in pristine condition. If you are interested in working with a class act, look no further. Everyone who has seen the work has been profoundly complimentary. I am THRILLED! Debbie

About

Original Abstract Acrylic Paintings from My Studio

When I was very young, my mother took a correspondence course in art history. From Michelangelo to Dali, those big color plates and books full of prints had an enormous impact on my young mind. I learned that I could draw well and had a strong desire to be an artist.
After moving to Pennsylvania, I studied Fine Art at Bucks County Community College and graduated with honors. While at Bucks, I was influenced by the late art historian Hafez Chehab, by his love for modern art, his enthusiasm for beautiful compositions, harmonious colors, lively brushwork. I was also influenced by the sculptures of Bernie Mangiaracina, and served an apprenticeship in bronze casting with Bernie. My work is still informed by his Brancusi-like, elegant curving sculptural forms.
I took courses and workshops at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, including portraiture, color theory and colorfield abstraction.
I focused on commissioned portraiture for many years, but my true love was always abstraction. In 2000-2004 I showed my abstracts locally in the Philadelphia and New York areas, including the Rittenhouse Square Fine Arts Annual, and the Bowery Gallery in Chelsea. In 2005 I made the decision to show my paintings online only. This provides tremendous artistic freedom and allows me to stay in my studio, which gives me great joy.
My paintings have been featured on book covers and brochures, and played a role in the movie “Universal Signs” in which the leading man is an artist.
Today my inspiration comes from the sheer joy of painting and, as time goes by, is more and more connected to my spirituality.
