“Excuse me while I cry a little; cry a lot.
I want to taste the joy of love; of embraces cloaked in sweet lullabies.
Of stolen kisses; of lingered looks.
Set me free to fly again.”
Deborah De Angelis is a firm believer that beauty comes from the ashes. Despite an idyllic childhood exploring her father's sprawling art studio, Deborah's adult life has been interspersed with danger and uncertainty. Her journey of overcoming a tumultuous marriage has been arduous, though painting has been Deborah's constant companion.
It is with colour that Deborah draws her deepest breath. Employing a vibrant, sunny colour palette, Deborah uses her dining table as 'home base' when creating art. This way, she walks past her creations constantly and can keep adding to them until they ‘tell her’ they are complete!
Deborah's lived experience has made her a more compassionate, empathetic person. She is forever grateful to art for keeping her grounded.
