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 40 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 year we will be holding our annual Studio Show on September 7th and 8th.  We have chosen this time because it will mark the 10th Anniversary of our purchasing this property in September of 2009.  In celebration of that event and all that has transpired since, we will be showing a slide show chronicling the changes that have taken place in those ten years.  So much of my work, (I could say all my work in the last ten years) has been inspired by our life on these 5 acres and the surrounding community, both natural and human, and therefore  tells the story of our lives. It is with earnest hope that by telling  this story we show our gratitude and acknowledgement for the shared human experience. Come see some new paintings, have a cup of tea and a piece of cake and share your love for beauty in the world.

Thank you for visiting our website.  Please email me with questions or if you wish to be on my mailing list.

All 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.
