About Debbie Parker

 
 
  • Biography

    I have experimented with paint and drawing materials ever since I was a child. Understanding what these materials do is key to getting the feeling right. Light splashes around a scene in many colours and shapes and I endeavour to make my landscapes convey the play of light at different times of the day in my favourite places.

    I enjoy bush walking and most of the landscapes I produce are inspired by the things I see in the bush throughout Australia. Living close to Mount Coot-Tha National Park and the Botanical Gardens in Brisbane has been a real source of inspiration for my new work.
