Biography/Artist Statement

Deborah Newman (b. 1956, Santa Barbara, CA)

Deborah’s artistic journey began in her early years in Marin County. Her childhood was spent hiking along the trails of Mount Tamalpais and riding horses across the Marin Headlands. These beautiful places ignited a lifelong love of the outdoors.

Specializing in landscapes and seascapes, Deborah reveals the interplay of light, color and texture with vibrant hues and thoughtful compositions. She paints en plein air to capture the freshness of natural settings in real time.

Deborah brings both formal education and professional experience to her art. She graduated with a BS in Fine Art from the University of Oregon, followed by a BFA with honors from the Art Center College of Design. She worked for years as an art director for Saatchi and Saatchi Advertising Agency in San Francisco. After relocation to Southern Nevada with her husband and children, Deborah began painting professionally in 2003.

Deborah maintains her successful career as a painter of landscapes and seascapes but is also actively engaged in exploring new artistic directions. Her current series — “Beautiful Abandonment” — features abandoned signage in abstracted settings that reveal themselves to be logically impossible only after closer view.

Deborah’s profound sensitivity to beauty is grounded in a commitment to the physicality of paint and canvas and brush. These are the tools which unveil her particular way of seeing.
