About Debra

 

DEBRA ROWLAND B.A. (HONS)

Coming  from a family of Artisans with varying passions from artists to  carpenters, master bakers to stained glass craftsmen, Debra's love and  appreciation of image, pattern and form  manifested from a young age.  She was originally born in England and spent her childhood and early  married life in North Wales, she later moved with her family to  Australia and again to Canada taking opportunities to expand her  creative palette and subjects through cultural influences, teachings,  traditions and landscapes from around the world.

Working  as an Artist and Instructor for nearly 30 years with a B.A. (Hons)  Illustration, Debra enjoys applying her traditional style to build new  and creative techniques. Through this free spirited approach to her  strict and traditional training, Debra creates a space for her students  to find their true style whilst observing formal teaching techniques.
