Deborah Shedrick's work is vibrant, colorful, and full of texture. Utilizing a palette knife, rollers and assorted objects, she shapes color and builds texture in rhythmic patterns and brilliant eruptions. Stylistically she combines realism and abstraction as she forges a unique and distinctive expression that has found tremendous resonance with her audience. She lets the vivid tints take over, leaving her figures elongated and suggested in her vertical canvases with some collaged materials.
Shedrick lives and loves art. What began as painting lessons in 1986, honing her artistic skills through workshops with other prominent artists, has developed into a career of her artwork being used nation-wide in hotels, on book covers, television shows, and for fundraisers. Articles have been written about her work in several newspapers and magazines.
She defines her paintings as free-style, uniquely her own. Her passion for art shines through her work. She captures the nuance of a moment, with the celebration of color and energy. Her artwork strikes a harmonious cord from a universal perspective and she is part of collections throughout the United States and abroad.
Shedrick states, "As I create, I reflect on the Master, the Author of Creativity, God. I share with you the spirituality of which my art is born. Hear the art speak to you of love, inner peace, strength and joy.
