"Plant Sale" acrylic on canvas 24 x 36 2022
Like many, I became a full-time artist after a long career in something else. In my case, writing. Now, five years in, I feel that I'm coming to my own personal style.
I work both on the iPad and with acrylics in my home studio. Inspired by Matisse and Hockney, I paint scenes that I find intriguing or beautiful, hoping to bring my own take to them by simplifying, abstracting or altering their color. Despite the dreary state of world affairs, I like to use bright, cheerful colors and convey my delight at being alive.
To see my work fresh off the canvas or screen, follow me on Instagram (@debbiegalant) or come see my home studio in Clifton, NJ. Most of my artwork is for sale.
