Deb Peters developed a love of drawing and painting at an early age. She was fortunate to be part of an artistic environment at home and with her community in the Fraser Valley.
During the 1980’s, Deb expressed her creative side by becoming a working potter, developing dishware and sculptures. Her works were sold in Western Canada, the Yukon and Japan. She then moved into education, teaching art, music and writing.
Deb’s love of creative works was the catalyst for her moving to Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island. Inspired by the natural surroundings, other artists and travel, her art is a reflection of a love for her surroundings. She can now be found in her studio using acrylics, oils and watercolours to illustrate the beauty that is abundant around her.
Deb continues to be influenced by numerous art teachers, other artists and is very appreciative of her mentor, Alison Watt (painter extraordinaire!). She is a member of the Canadian Federation of Artists/Active Member, Group of Nine Painters on Vancouver Island and participates in Art Fairs and galleries.
