About the Artist

Debra Bretton Robinson is an artist residing in Chelmsford, MA and a participant in the vibrant Lowell, MA art scene. She grew up in Plaistow, NH and has been inspired by the New England landscapes surrounding her throughout her life. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston. Her acrylic paintings on canvas concentrate on places she encounters everyday in her life or places she frequents, mainly because of her husband who loves to fish. Her style borders between representational and abstract often enlisting New England architecture as a base while using bold, contrasting colors for a contemporary edge. The colors and lines of her paintings are inspired by Matisse during the Fauvist movement and The Seven, a group of painters working in Canada at the turn of the 20th Century. The talents of several other artists she continues to draw upon are: William Henry Johnson, Tommy Thompson, Lawren Harris, Emily Carr, Alice Neel and Edward Hopper. Jazz and Blues music continue to be a force in her work.
Debra works out of her studio at 122 Western Avenue, Lowell MA #A409. She can be contacted through her email address. Debra currently has her work in several online galleries including the Saatchi Gallery in London, FineArtAmerica.com and the Xanadu Gallery in Scottsdale, AZ .
