Deborah W. Howard



My work is about capturing and conveying moments I experience. Each painting is made up of colors and imagery from these many fleeting moments, that in an instant are gone. The imagery is applied in layers that are buried within each piece and represent time that has passed. These layers are then obscured or sanded away to reveal the history and process of each work. Eventually a final layer emerges to reflect where I am now.
I grew up on the Cape and after many years away, I have returned.
