Deborah Pellock's interest in art began at a very young age. As a child and young adult in the state of Michigan, she won several awards for her drawings. As a young adult she continued her study of art by attending two Michigan colleges, Macomb and Oakland. Presently, Deborah is living with her husband in Suwanee, Georgia. She studies and paints with Dee Beard Dean, nationally known "plein air" artist, mentor and friend. This opportunity has given Deborah the ability to develop her skills in oils. The artist says "Dee has influenced my work forever." Deborah also studied portraiture with renowned artist Burton Silverman and John DeLavega.

In her extensive travels to various cities Deborah visits museums studying the works of famous artists. A few of her favorite past artists are Sorolla, Sargeant and Mary Cassat. Her favorite contemporary artists are C.W. Mundy, Kenn Bachus, Kevin Macpherson and Burton Silverman. Plein air painting has enhanced Deborah's ability to better understand color and light, shadows, edges and atmosphere. She states "I feel a real joy and satisfaction when I capture beauty in the ordinary." Deborah especially enjoys painting the architecture of historic areas, figurative, landscapes, still life and portraiture. A wide variety of subjects keeps Deborah well rounded and continually
challenged. In keeping a freshness of brushstroke she avoids overworking the painting. The love of people and the beauty of creation move her to paint with passion.

Deborah's paintings can now be found throughout the country and is represented in Buford, Georgia and Charleston, South Carolina. Presently, she gives painting lessons in her studio in Suwanee, Georgia.

After a life's devotion to raising my three children, I am fulfilling my life long dream. I am now able to devote my energy to painting, a natural outcome of my deep appreciation for art. Painting in color (much more so than drawing) has taught me to see the world differently. I now notice aspects of God's creation that I hadn't noticed before. My goal is to not just create art, but to create a feeling. I want people to see the unseen in my paintings. It is my prayer that you will enjoy my paintings as much as I enjoy the feelings I have while creating them.
