PPLD's Maker in Residence in August/September 2017 was Deb Bartos, who has always been fascinated with new discoveries in the natural world and has been hiking and exploring for as long as she can remember. Rediscovering creative expression in painting as an adult has enhanced her learning to see even more in nature. Her work is best categorized as realistic impressionism, as she captures light and color often on location in oil. To see some of her work, visit DebBartos.com.
She will be taught Painting in Water-soluble Oils classes throughout the Library District, as well as hosting studio hours at Library 21c, when she discussed her work.
