Deborah Paisner, Boston Tea Party, oil, 20 x 16.


“I have a passion for creative challenges. I try to learn something new from each painting, to make the next one more masterly, to capture more light, and to express my inspiration more clearly. Lately, I have alternated between oil painting still life and plein air painting New Mexico landscapes, with a few figurative works in between. I aim to keep myself and the viewer amused."
 

Muy Curiosa, oil, 16 x 20.


Deborah Paisner has been oil painting since January 2000, after she relocated from Northern California to Santa Fe, New Mexico with her husband Jeff and daughter Leah. Art and creativity has always been an important part of her life, although prior to this time, her career was as an occupational therapist and her priority was as a mother of Leah, and wife to Jeff. Deborah’s background: She graduated with Great Distinction from San Jose State University (SJSU) in 1975, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in occupational therapy (OT) with minors in psychology and art. She obtained her OT Registration from the American Occupational Therapy Association in 1976 and received her Master of Science degree in occupational therapy from SJSU in 1981. Although Deborah still maintains her New Mexico OT License, she has not practiced occupational therapy since March 2007. Oil painting has taken center stage.

 


Deborah continues to enjoy honing her art skill, and has profited creatively and technically from her studies with several local artists, including Anita Louise West, Wendy Higgins, Cynthia Rowland, Kevin Gorges, Cary Ennis, Lee Rommel, Jeanette Dryden, Judith D’Agostino, and Roger Williams.
