Debra Houston is a self-taught artist who began her art career studying and re-painting the scenes of impressionist masters, such as Degas and Monet. As she figured out how the Impressionists achieved their effects, she began to develop her own style.
Living in the Northwest, her work depicts the romantic, rainy scenes of that region. The figures head down a road flanked by tall buildings, umbrellas in hand. There is something equally hopeful and foreboding as her figures’ determine their journeys down the long road ahead.
