Fiona Debell Artist

artist statement

Self taught, I began my painting career using reclaimed furniture as my canvas. I have spent over 20 years teaching refinishing and decorative art workshops, and working alongside some of the most renowned paint companies out there. It was an obvious step to indulge my need to apply paint, into a need to create art.

Using skills and techniques I have practiced over many years, and utilizing my knowledge of the materials and textures of decorative art, I have honed my craft.

I love texture as well as a smooth matt finish. I learn every day and find huge inspiration from the working artists I see locally and around the world sharing their work.

I focus on three areas. Elemental Textures, Cityscapes and Domestic Animals.

I work on many pieces at any given time. Wether you are enchanted by the beautiful glass like finish of one of my resin pieces or enjoy the loose nature of my textured abstracts, I can promise you there is a story behind every work.

My goal is to create pieces that encourage you to stop and look. I want you to enjoy the piece and perhaps feel a little of the enchantment I felt in making it for you.


Working in a variety of mixed media I explore colour and texture in composition, developing a natural flow through my art.
