Deborah Eve Alastra
Having lived and traveled internationally sporadically throughout her life, Deborah finished high school in England followed by several years of work and travel in Europe. She returned to study Fine Arts and paint at the Bellas Artes in Guanajuato Mexico, before completing a degree in Painting and Printmaking at the University of California at Santa Cruz. Her current residence is in Portland, Oregon, a vibrant city nestled in the beautiful Pacific NW of the USA.
From the Artist... Described by some as Impressionistic, Village Naive, Nabi, Outsider, I paint what I am drawn to in my environment, often seeing beauty in everyday subject matter. International living and travel throughout my life has been a strong influence, as does my current residence in the beautiful Pacific Northwest of the US. I paint quickly and continually; my paintings range from antiquated and modern urban scenes, gardens, landscapes, unique stills, interiors and now and then images from dreams.
