Artist Statement

ARTIST STATEMENT - DEBORAH WILSON

I�m a native of Missouri, but, my husband and I have taken many opportunities to experience other areas of the US and our neighboring countries. So, my artwork is influenced by all of those cultures and environments which we have spent time in. This includes cross-country camping and hiking trips, which dip into Canada or Mexico, along with various missions trips, working vacations and temporary residences. We have gone on working vacations for extended time periods in USVI (St. John) and Yellowstone National Park. And, my husband and I were dual residents of Missouri and Hawaii for about 5 or 6 years. So, as you can imagine, there is great diversity of subject matter and I need several more lifetimes to paint everything that is wanting to be painted! Some paintings have been done in our camper, some in a makeshift studio in the closet, on the floor or on the dining room table. Here in Missouri, I have a studio separate from our house on our land, just outside of Springfield.

Who we are and whatever is in our hearts tends to come out in our artwork. So, you will find a lot of spiritual themes in my work, along with an appreciation for wildlife and nature. Recently, I have found myself creating paintings that have some qualities of illusion in them, so that the viewer doesn�t immediately see what is most important in the painting. I realized the other day that I had begun painting those �hidden� paintings along about the same time that I had begun digging into the hidden biblical truths that had been lost to us in our modern culture. Discovering the Hebrew roots of my faith had caused me to subconsciously paint hidden subjects into the artwork that will only be seen by those who take the time to really �see�.

Although I paint in all major mediums, watercolor is my favorite medium to work with. It suits my personality - it�s adventurous, spontaneous, and free-flowing. I love to allow the paint to do what it wants to do naturally, then pull in the reins and focus in on an area of interest. The graphite is an important element of the painting, since it adds a rustic feel and prevents the painting from becoming too sweet and frilly. Every new painting is a new challenge that I can only conquer through guts, sweat, and, yes - prayers.

Most of my professional career has been employed as an illustrator for publishers across the country, doing artwork for books, posters, and periodicals. In addition, I frequently do new designs for a local gift wrapping company in Hawaii. I have also worked as a full-time public school art teacher and a private watercolor teacher. It is a great luxury to have the opportunity now to paint what touches my soul.
