Deb Gillespie

Deb Gillespie is the kind of person who gravitates to creative projects. They do not always find her, but she will often seek out ways to explore her talents. Deb is a disciplined artist, and she is at her best when spending hours at a time with a paintbrush in her hand. Some projects prove daunting for certain artists, but Deb will dance all night with her craft whenever a particular piece calls for it. Be it a painting, a slew of marvelous decorations, or hand crafted furniture—Deb once constructed a series of tables out of cut tiles, branches, and broken glass—Deb’s works are labors of love that suggest creativity also gravitates to her.
With a desire to master challenging techniques the same way an experienced hiker might yearn to master a mountain, Deb is committed to using the glazing technique whenever she paints. Glazing is a style of painting that falters without persistence and tests an artist’s endurance as well as skill. Those who adapt to glazing have learned to master their patience while applying up to seven layers of thin color onto a canvas or board, using only transparent oils to achieve a vibrant yet timeless perspective—observing a glazed piece can be like looking a photo. Glazing results in sincere paintings that help preserve the sense of sophistication that has long defined the very act of painting.
