Artist Deborah Smith
Deborah lives on the Central Coast with her family and has been painting throughout San Luis Obispo County since 2010. Prior to 2010, Deborah worked mostly in pencil drawing friends, family and the pets they loved. She was primarily self taught in drawing but began oil painting after taking a local class at Dave's Art Farm in Arroyo Grande under the guidance of award winning artist Anita Hampton and David Saari. Their approach to teaching was all it took to get Deborah hooked and she hasn't looked back. She has since taught two beginning oil painting classes at Dave's Art Farm.
" I have been blessed to live on the Central Coast since 1968 and now have the double blessing of becoming a part of the local art community and painting the beauty that surrounds us. Learning to use color and painting outdoors to capture the light has been a challenging and very rewarding experience. Painting has become my passion. It's never to late to find and live your passion!"
