Debi Fitzgerald has been a professional artist for more than 35 years. Her love of nature, animals and humanity is apparent in her works of art. Without formal training Debi has evolved as an artist through the deep emotions she feels for the world around her.
She resides in a small rural town in The Kawarthas in a log home built in 1835. She began painting rural scenes along with water and sunsets as her main subjects.
Her themes since then are all connected to the enormous passion she brings to each of these subjects and that brings her closer to the land and to the people of that land.
Her studies began with roses, water and then wolves. Being connected with the Ojibwa brought many of her themes together, influenced by First Nation artists. The subject of water has been a lifelong theme for her. All of her passionate subjects were studied, explored and painted until life brought her another obsession.
These latter days her work was about her emotions, grieving and the spirit.
This large work of hers is a water study of a waterfall in the Kawarthas in the 1980's. The waterfall is in the centre of the piece and the landscape around the river is beautifully pulled into a kind of vision or panoramic view that is tremendously well done.
She is a listed Canadian artist and is represented by: National Gallery of Canada - Library and Archives / Canadian Museum of Contemporary Photography Art Gallery of Ontario - Edward P. Taylor Research Library and Archives Toronto Reference Library
