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

This summer I'm working on new paintings for a gallery show.  I haven't quite gotten my statement written yet, but you can see the dates below.  There will not be a formal opening reception but I will be giving a talk at the gallery on September 10th.  If you are in the area, it would be great to see you.  Because of this show, I will not be having a studio show this summer but instead we'll be open over the Thanksgiving Weekend with lots of cards and calendars, some paintings and prints--perfect for gift giving.  And as always, you can visit the studio by appointment.  A few days notice is welcome, since we never know what is happening from day to day!

Happy Summer!

Boundaries and Horizons
New Paintings

These paintings continue my attempt to capture the essence of my experience-- living on four and half acres on the edge of an estuary, surrounded by woods, bordered by the sea, in a hundred year old house on the North Oregon Coast.  If it is possible to find all the universal truths, the elemental memories, in one place, I mean to find them here.  My observations and thoughts become imagery.

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.
