Deborah Allison rediscovered her love of art and painting while living in Paris, France from 1989 to 2000. Studying with Alexandra Georgeon-Colin and Timothy Wells gave her the training needed to be a painter in the more traditional styles. After sampling most of the 2 dimensional media, Deborah settled on watercolor for most of her on site landscape paintings because of the fluid nature and ease in transporting the finished work.
From 2007 to 2009 Deborah studied with Tony Ryder at the Ryder Studio in Santa Fe, focusing on long pose portraiture and figure work in oil and graphite.
Not satisfied to rest, she has worked more recently on a more stylized approach to figures and portraits. These new pieces reflect the joy and playful attitude that Deborah herself expresses. Today, she works out of her studio in far West Texas where she welcomes visitors and students to join her in her delight.
