Painting emotional stories that connect us

Painter Deb Breton working on extra large abstract painting

Globally collected artist Deb Breton is an abstract expressionist artist living in Northern California, U.S.

Hi, I’m Deb,
In school, I was that quirky kid who was always drawing during English Literature class, or backstage painting sets for the Drama Department.

At the top of my “career,” I was an artist for notable clients Nestle, Warner Brothers, and the Dali Museum. But I was not happy with the corporate hustle. So, I picked up woodturning, which eventually led me full circle back to painting. 

You will find me in my studio working with acrylics, oils, ink, and spray paint. My tools are oftentimes things like sponges, flowers, branches, and squeegees. I tend to break many of the rules that I was taught in art. But the hardest thing for me to learn was how to step out of my own way and let creativity flow.

My art reflects my scattered mind —inspired by life, nature, the universe and sometimes even the beat of my playlist. It is extremely difficult for me to stay on script—my ADHD ensures that. Luckily, I find peace and calm in painting.

Art is a reminder for us to honor our authentic selves in a world that often tries to box us in.


every piece of art starts with love. Brush on gesso with love.



Breton shares her unique vie­w of the world as expressive works of art. The work isn’t just about the finished piece, it is about the creative journey, the process. It’s about the feelings, the stories, and the experiences of her life, which have shaped each brushstroke. She uses many mediums, such as oil, acrylic, pastel, charcoal, pencil, and ink, to create expressive paintings. Each gestural mark is a punctuation in her expressive language of storytelling.

Breton’s paintings can be found in collections all over the world. “Every brushstroke and splash of paint, is an expression of emotion. And it’s this energy in these paintings, that I share with you.”
