Deb Gartland is a self-taught traditional and contemporary fine art photographer, who goes around with a head full of high falutin’ ideas! Deb‘s artistic journey started early in life with a passion for writing that continues to this day – however her main love in this area has been honed to children‘s writing and haiku.
Deb‘s photography is highly eclectic and ranges from macro, portraiture and landscspes to still life, abstract and experimental. Her work has been highly successful at national and international Salons and Exhibitions, and she has been awarded her Licentiate (LAPS) and Associate (AAPS) by the Australian Photographic Society. Awards that recognise photographic skill.
The beginning of 2019 saw Deb set up her Encaustic workshop in the Gallery, where she works and collaborates with another artist. This move had seen Deb’s photo encaustic and mixed media works take yet another turn – rather than working in the shed, she has the space to leave works in-situ, to quickly print off additional images as and when required and the freedom to do what she loves – create works that are left-of-field, confront viewers and challenge traditional boundaries.
