Deborah Velásquez, a Brooklyn original, who now enjoys the creative life in the wooded hills of New England with her husband and two sons. She is an artist-designer and blogger who creates paintings, prints, ceramics, cards, textiles and mobiles. She has a love of home decor and dreams of designing rugs.
Her inspiration comes from walks on the beaches of Martha’s Vineyard, the streets of Paris and New York,
the simple beauty of nature found her back garden, and the primitive innocence of her son's scribbles.
She loves the mix of design, words, art and craft. Deborah’s work is modern, sophisticated, graphic and bold with a unique color sense and it reflects her love for the simplicity of line. She works in both digital and traditional methods. Her traditional work shows her love of gouache, watercolor and printmaking.
She has said "When I am making art, I know this is what I should be doing.
I want my work to be,"Where Art and Beauty Meet Lifestyle" ©
