Debbie Hart was born in Wisconsin and currently lives and works in Illinois, where she creates photo-realistic paintings of natural and equestrian subjects. Debbie’s works utilize natural lighting and deep earthy colors to achieve a sense of brighter-than-life boldness.
I really enjoy the smooth, polished aesthetic of Debbie’s paintings. The artist seems to know exactly when to stop working a painting, creating finished images that retain the tiniest hint of the artist’s hand, while also exhibiting a fine attention to detail. In Debbie’s animal portraits and floral paintings, the artist tends to leave the background painted in a textured gradient, focusing both her attentions, and those of the viewer, on the subject.
Debbie also sells many of her works as prints on household items like pillows and even T-shirts. I especially enjoy her selection of tote bags – it makes a great way to own a beautiful painting, and carry around with you wherever you go.
