Deborah Forrest Lightfield
Art reflects the artist’s surroundings, beliefs, and experiences.
The more I paint, meet people, visit galleries, and study art history,
the more I enjoy this journey of exploration.
My artistic intention is for my art to interpret these subjects
while using a variety of expressive, interesting, and bold colors and textures.
I enjoy the challenges of making unifying compositions,
working with different styles or experimenting with different mediums.
Art is a multilayered experience with many perspectives.
Personally, I want to live and create while seeing similarities
and embracing differences.
The visual experience of music, nature and
positive energy have always been important parts of my creative process.
Hopefully, my visual interpretations will relate to the viewer
with the joy I had in creating each piece of artwork.
Deborah Lightfield moved to Ponte Vedra, Florida, after retiring from two careers --
twenty years in the jewelry industry and twenty years as an art teacher.
She earned the Bachelor of Fine Arts and Bachelor of Science
degrees from James Madison University in Virginia.
She also received the Gemologist Certification from the
Gemological Institute of America in California.
Throughout her career, she has created artwork that has been
displayed and sold in many galleries and art shows.
Deborah has lived in New York, California, Illinois, South Carolina and
North Carolina. She worked on Princess Cruises for two years.
Her career and interests have taken her on travels around the world. ·
Perhaps the artistic DNA genes have been handed-down to me from
my great-great-great uncle James McNeil Whistler
