About the Artist.
Deborah Masters has always been drawn to old-world finishes and the timeless beauty of their imperfections and antiquity. Old books entrance Masters with their rich earthy, subtle colours worn so beautifully by years of handling, creating the books' exterior story: a tangible story connecting to our parents and ancestors. Knowing they held and enjoyed the same books is a cherished thought, and these surfaces influence the process and the appearance of the backgrounds in Masters' work.
Her paintings encompass the love for these finishes and the love for animals. Although the birds and animals in Master's work represent her journey, they may also connect the viewer to their own story.
Masters hopes her paintings draw the viewer into nature's sensitive and beautiful world, full of light, colour and design. She works many layers into her paintings to capture this effect of timeless antiquity.
Debora Masters studied encaustics at the Ontario College of Art and has a Fine Arts and Graphic Design diploma, with furthering studies in France.
Masters' art and decorative work have been featured in several Canadian Magazines, including The Globe and Mail. Her artwork is owned in many private collections across Canada, Dubai and the Turks and Caicos.
She paints full-time in her studio in the Town of The Blue Mountains.
