Creating art that touches the soul and makes our world a brighter place, one painting at a time
Inspiring, empowering, uplifting, and emotional…
Inspiring, empowering, uplifting, and emotional… Painting colorful abstracts and portrait paintings that go beyond the boundaries of color, texture and movement to create art that connects us on a soul level. See if you can “feel the joy that I felt, when creating it.”
My work comes from an intuitive, almost meditative state and is pure emotion, made manifest with every line, brushstroke and droplet of paint.
An avid gardener, birder and hiker, I enjoy good wine and bad habits. I live with my wife of 21 years, a rescue dog and a geriatric 20 year old cat. We’re tucked in the hills of beautiful wine country, here in Sonoma County California and it all fuels my inspiration and 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 a passion for life, with heart and soul. Collected internationally.
Long Bio (for press)
Deb Breton is best known for her colorful abstracts and empowering portrait paintings. Though Deb’s a self-taught painter, she credits her earlier career creating for clients like Warner Bros. Studio’s, Nestle and the Dali Museum for giving her a solid background in design and color.
As more work was being done on computer, Breton really longed to create with her hands again. She learned to turn, carve and paint wood. 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. So, 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 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.
