Through 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 my 35 year love of image making, both past and recent paintings, pastels, photographs and books. Here you will also be able to read about the ongoing restoration of Huckleberry Farm, the gone wild land and rustic, but stately house my husband filmmaker Carl Vandervoort and I purchased in 2009. A project of creation itself, it naturally belongs beside my artwork, and will undoubtedly inspire future images and stories. As the studio is built and new artwork is made, these developments will also be posted here as they unfold. I hope you enjoy visiting my world. Please contact me with questions or comments. I'd love to hear from you.
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.

Fall is upon us. It's been very dry this summer--beautiful and sunny, but dry. Our creek is trickling and we are relieved that the watertower that we built earlier this year is providing us with enough water for the essentials while we await the rain. I want to thank all those who ventured to the coast and found our driveway, for visiting us during the Open Studio Weekends. We saw old friends and made new ones. It's a wonderful time to connect and talk about the importance of beauty in our lives. We look forward to next year.
We've spent a lot of time building our barn, stick by stick, slowly but surely, and although there is still much to finish, I'm slowly getting back in the studio, settling into the rhythm of painting. In November Carl and I will once again be part of the team that hangs the Sitka Art Invitational. Come see this incredible show. I will have three pieces in the over 150 artist, 450 piece exhibition and sale.
