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

The Holidays will soon be upon us and with it cozy nights and bracing days in contrast with the gentle long days of summer.  Because our coastal weather was so irresistable I chose to paint outside this summer.  I sketched and painted the small wild corners of our land where grasses and vines, shrubs and trees mingle in a messy richness that defies ordering.  You can see the sixteen small paintings that resulted on the Recent Work page and they will be shown at our Thanksgiving Weekend Studio Show and Sale, here at Huckleberry Farm Studios.

We hope to see you!

Best Wishes,
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.
