Located in The Fine Arts Building in downtown Chicago, my studio is a place of quiet and peaceful exploration. Entering this historic haven for visual artists, musicians, theater and dance is like walking into a well loved home and I pinch myself daily for the opportunity to work in such an inspirational environment. All are welcome to attend monthly Second Fridays Open Studio events-See more: http://www.debralepage.com or http://www.fineartsbuildingstudios.com

Watercolor has been my medium of choice for the last 14 years. The unpredictable way the pigments mix on the paper make the process one of exploration and often, surprise. Though I enjoy a wide range of subject matter, recent work has tended toward the abstract upon discovering a material named “Yupo” . It's slick surface has changed my approach completely. Yupo is “earth friendly,” a tree and pulp free synthetic paper made of 100% recyclable materials and is perfect for flexibility in both laying down and lifting of pigments.

In progress, is the “Ebb and Flow” Series on Yupo. It involves exploration of the flow of water to form organic images, shapes and textures with an evolutionary theme in mind. As in the natural world, water is the key element. The ebb and flow of the tides, patterns shared in nature and the human body are most intriguing and speak to the rhythm of life.



“In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous...”
