The Artist Says:


"I am passionate about the subjects I paint and want to be able to share them with others through my work. My hope is that the joy I feel in the creation of each piece will come through to those who view my art."



Collectors Say:


Diane Albright -“Debbie Hughbanks's art has the ability to speak. Her work reflects her warmth and artistic creativity.  It draws one into the heart of the work.  One is able to see the beauty in people, animals and ordinary items like a strawberry or an antler or a native pot.  It is a joy to look at the sweet faces of a beautiful mother and child or the a young sandpiper. Her work graces the walls of friends and relatives who somehow came to mind when I saw a particular piece of art." 



Dealers Say:


Allan and Elaine Duerr, Art of the West Magazine -"Art is meant to evoke a personal response and when we saw Debbie's painting of an English Springer, called Daydreamin,' it stopped us in our tracks ... the response for us was this piece looked like our English Springer, Bailey.  Bailey is gone now, but gave us so much pleasure over the years that this piece of art is even more important to us today.  Don't let a piece of art get way from you if it speaks to you."

Artist Statement
I paint because I must paint. The creation of art is a passion, a need and a desire that I feel I must meet on some level every day whether it is simply planning the composition of the next work in my mind or placing the finishing touches on the pastel or painting I have had in progress for days.  My inspirations come from the animals, people and surroundings that I love . . . for I find I am passionate about these things, as well, and want to be able to [...]
