Collection: Deborah Maurer - Interdisciplinary Figurative Artist
The human form has interested Deborah as far back as she can remember, but what truly intrigues her is what lies beyond the exterior - the heart and mind. How we think and feel about ourselves and how we relate to one another is what inspires this artist and informs her work; it has been the consistent theme throughout her artistic career. The mood and character of her works are as broad as the spectrum of human emotions, but her distinctive style is always recognizable.
Deborah Maurer is an interdisciplinary figurative artist; a painter, sculptor, printmaker, and mixed media artist who explores life through her art. She has been a professional artist for more than four decades, and over those years she’s won numerous awards for her sculptures and paintings and done both corporate and private commissions. She has exhibited widely, and her work is in private and corporate collections in the U.K., Norway, Belgium, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Hong Kong, Cayman Islands, the USA, and Canada.
The artist’s education is a compilation of Ontario College of Art, University of Toronto, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, as well as many courses and workshops along the way. Many artists have influenced her work, however most notable is the late Canadian figurative painter Telford Fenton, under whom she studied and with whom she shares a hometown – Chesley, Ontario.
