welcome.pngThrough accident or design, you've arrived at the website for Huckleberry Farm Studios. We are Deborah DeWit, artist, and Carl Vandervoort, filmmaker.

Please wander through the results of our 35 year love of image making, past and recent paintings, pastels, photographs, books and films. Here you will also be able to read about the ongoing restoration of Huckleberry Farm, the gone wild land and rustic but stately house we  purchased in 2009. A project of creation and love, it is a central part of both our lives and our careers, and continues to inspire images and stories.  I hope you enjoy visiting our world. Please contact me with questions or comments. I'd love to hear from you.

Exhibitions & Events

I think the last time I updated this was just before my gallery show this past May at White Bird.  It's now nearly the end of the year! I guess it was a busy summer... Our next event is the annual Studio Show Thanksgiving Weekend here at our home on Nehalem Bay.  I'm still finishing up new paintings and will post them on this site by Thanksgiving Day for any of you who wish to see them but are unable to come to the show.  This new work continues my interest in our connection with the natural world and our human needs for order and understanding and how these things inform one another.

Thank you for visiting our website.  Please email me with questions or if you wish to be on my mailing list.
We send our very best wishes to you all for a happy holiday season! 

Deborah and Carl

Huckleberry Farm

Go Back to where it all started...

In August of 2009 Carl and I visited the small beach town of Manzanita on the North Coast of Oregon where Carl had shared a holiday home for many years. On a whim, we took a slightly different route, heading further south from there to a place where Carl bought flowers at a roadside stand many times in the years before.
