Creating art that touches the soul and makes our world a brighter place, one painting at a time
Inspiring, empowering, uplifting, and emotional…
I paint colorful abstracts and portrait paintings, using color, texture and movement to express what words cannot. Every painting is imbued with love, soul and positive vibes. And it’s my hope that you receive as much joy from your painting, as I felt when creating it.
Since 2005, I’ve been a professional artist, at first carving and turning wood. But then, in 2010 my mother came to live with us under hospice care. I began painting to help me during that difficult time – and I’ve never stopped. My work comes from an intuitive, almost meditative state and is pure emotion, made manifest with every line, brushstroke and droplet of paint.
I live with my family in beautiful Sonoma County California, where we are surrounded by nature, vineyards and wine, and all fuel the imagination.
The Power of Color
Colorful art has this amazing way of making us feel good and that’s my focus when creating uplifting and empowering art. Sure, I could tell you about color theory and why certain artworks can illicit an emotion, but I won’t bore you with all that. Let’s just say that my works celebrate life in all its quirkiness and passions, with heart and soul.
Deb Breton is best known for her colorful abstracts and empowering portrait paintings. Though Deb’s primarily a self-taught painter, her earlier design career found her creating for clients like Warner Bros. Studio’s, Nestle and the Dali Museum.
As more work was being done on computer, Breton really longed to create with her hands again. As a hobby, she began to turn wood and as she says, “there was something so satisfying about taking a log that was destined for the fireplace and turning it into something beautiful.” This hobby quickly became her profession, her work was appearing in print and being collected globally.
Change of events
In 2010 Deb’s mom came to live with her under hospice care. Setting up a studio in the room next to hers, Deb began painting. Just as she had drawn and colored as a kid to help her survive her lung condition, she found that painting was a great release to help her cope with her mom’s passing.
Now Breton paints how she see’s the world, infused with vibrant, uplifting colors. Many of her paintings include hidden hearts and symbolism in them. She oftentimes uses this symbolism, together with words and lyrics to express empowering themes.
When viewing her colorful work, you can sense that it’s created by someone who has an obvious zest for life. And it’s THIS energy, imbued in her paintings, that light up the room.
Deb Breton lives in the rolling hills of Sonoma County, California. Together with her wife of 21 years, they care for their geriatric kitty and an adopted rescue dog named Ziggy.
