Welcome to the Vibrant World
of Fine Artist Debra Martin
Debra Martin is a Canadian artist, currently living and painting in the beautiful Okanagan Valley.
She was born and spent many happy years on the Canadian Prairies before moving on to work and study on both the East and West coasts of Canada. Today, the saturated colors of the Okanagan, the drama of the Prairies’ endless sky, and the tangible energy of the coast have heavily influenced her work.
Debra methodically applies multiple layers of glazes and tints to create luminosity and depth in her canvases. Her paintings, especially the florals, have a 3-dimensional effect achieved by using heavy gels to sculpt petals directly onto the canvas.
Debra’s landscapes are characterised by soft floating clouds and majestic trees. Her still lifes are very influenced by patterns and bold colours of fabrics which are often incorporated into her work.
