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

We just said so long to the Summer Solstice and days are getting shorter as they become more and more summery.  The Memorial Day Open Studio and my oil painting class are also behind us, but please do check out the Recent painting page to see the work just delivered to the White Bird Gallery in Cannon Beach which will be featured through August.  If you're visiting the Oregon coast please stop by the gallery.  Our next event is Greg Wilbur's metal class.  If you want information or wish to sign up, please email me.

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.
