welcome.pngThrough accident or design, you've arrived at the website for Deborah DeWit. 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.

The Story of 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.

Vision is the act of seeing the invisible.

Exhibitions & Event

We are busy preparing for the Open Studios.  I will have a few new paintings on view, with others in progress.  The 2015 calendars should have arrived by then and as always we'll have books, videos, reproductions, coffee and cookies on hand.  We also have many old favorite and new notecards to choose from.  Please stop by during your visit to the beautiful North Oregon Coast. For directions or questions please send us an email.  If you aren't able to visit, you can still see the new work here on the Recent Work page.  

While seeing artwork you can also see a "work in progress barn" being built.  Between the weekends Carl and I will be carpenters, trying to get this new building roofed before the rains come.  Never a dull moment around here....
