Artist’s Statement:

An artist never stops observing & imagining.  On every walk, drive or travel around the world I’m constantly framing a scene to recreate on canvas.  Everything is an inspiration.  Whether it be a springboard or a reality, my paintings bring me back to that spot, that moment.  I paint where I want to be.  It changes often, perhaps to maintain homeostasis.  A muted palette is often followed by vibrancy, water followed by land, sky by ground.  In any case, I strive to convey my emotions and interpretation in a manner which is truthful to each individual subject.

About the Artist:

Deborah Petrucci began creating as a young child, either drawing or sewing.  It was in her genes, her grandfather being a sculptor in Italy & father being an architect.  She started her BFA at SUNY Purchase in NY & assisted in layout & illustration for Westchester Illustrated magazine in the 70s.

She was quickly drawn to land and cityscapes as her content for oil paintings and through many travels near and abroad, she developed an extensive gallery of images.  Her love of the old town charm of Europe was further enhanced by a summer painting in Italy in 2001 and numerous travels throughout Asia provided much inspiration.  Close inspection of palm trees in recent years resulted in a micro botanical series.  Additional studies at Parsons School of Design in New York, earned her a certificate in Interior Design, and expanded her abilities to include architectural rendering.

Deborah has exhibited extensively through the years in Westchester and New York City group shows, including Amsterdam Whitney Gallery, The Salmagundi Club, The American Artists Professional League and The Pelham Art Center.  Her membership at Mamaroneck Artists Guild from 1989 to the present has included her in many group shows as well as outside opportunities.  Her solo shows in Westchester have resulted in the sale of numerous paintings.

She continues to challenge herself and discover new avenues of interpretation and expression.
