Deborah T. Colter
Deborah T. Colter is interested in the pure pleasure of form, line, and color. She describes her work as a continual evolutionary journey of discovery. She works with a variety of mixed mediums, collage and acrylic polymer paints building multiple layers on the surface until the piece begins to lead her to its own conclusion. Deborah holds a BFA from Rhode Island School of Design. She is widely represented in private and corporate collections throughout the United States and overseas. Deborah lives and works on the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
Deborah had the pleasure of working with the 2015 HGTV Dream Home designers to place three of her pieces in the project that was built on Martha’s Vineyard the Fall of that year.
Working side by side with corporate art consultants and galleries Deborah has been delighted to be included some powerful art collections including Adobe Systems, Biogen Corporation, J.W.Marriott, Cisco Systems, & Conner Strong Companies, among others.
Growing up with a cartoonist/architect father who had a ceaseless work ethic, his devotion to his craft strongly influenced Deborah’s own approach to her painting practice.
