Ohio Artists. Debra Purcell and her complete and simple paintings. Today, enjoy the wonderful works of this different spiritual artist, Yareah friends!


Serpente Viatte by Debra Purcell

Debra Purcell is a self taught artist from Lakewood, Ohio. Beautiful land which inspires her every day.

She approaches the canvas each time with a complete and simple idea of the forms and subject. She works mostly in acrylic but do sometimes use watercolors and oils. No matter what is going on in her life at the beginning of a painting, because she is motivated by a spiritual joy that she hopes to convey in each piece.


Regatta Town by Debra Purcell

Each time that Debra begins a painting, she watches her image changing as the work interacts with art itself. A language has emerged then and she enjoys the dialog with each attempt. The discipline of the craft is met with the interactive joy of the ‘now-ness’ of each piece.

Over the last few years, she has learned a new color alphabet inspired by the experience of creating. She looked for images of water, trees, and flowers and they appear in her works like archetypes of the essence of these things.


Indigo by Debra Purcell

She understands color as the soul of the painting and the form as the body that carries the soul to life. Everything is spiritual around her. The color and forms take their own direction like a little girl playing dress up with her mother’s clothing. In fact, it is very important to her to allow the color and form to do this, her discipline is to make it work by being true to the image she is trying to convey.
