... The mind's palette from which we choose to color our world."
Deborah Dal Zuffo
Born and raised in New England as a young child, Deborah was inspired by nature's rich palette of autumn colors. Her love of the outdoors and its tiniest, often unnoticed details, are reflected in her paintings. They are bathed in the hues of Nature, and reveal her training in botanical illustration. Deborah's artwork often focuses on the simple leaves, rocks, and the tiny creatures hiding within, capturing the essence of the forest floor and its ever-changing tapestry of texture, depth, and life. Deborah works in watercolor, ink, pencil, pastel, colored pencils, and ceramic
