Debora L. Stewart

"My ultimate goal as an artist is to create richly textured abstract paintings with beauty and depth that reflect the mystery and spirit of the natural world. "

Debora Stewart creates abstract paintings in pastel and acrylic. Her work is non-objective and influenced by nature. One of her major themes is exploring the use of flowers and plants in abstraction.

Stewart is a Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America and a member of the Master's Circle of the International Association of Pastel Societies. Her paintings have won awards from Pastel Journal Magazine, International Artist Magazine, and the Pastel Society of America. Her work has been included in numerous juried exhibitions and is represented by galleries and design firms throughout the United States.

Stewart is the author of a book by Northlight titled "Abstract Art Painting: Expressions in Mixed Media." She has also created a series of videos for Artists Network TV on abstract pastel painting. She has taught numerous workshops for artists throughout the USA and served as a juror for the Pastel 100 Competition of Pastel Journal Magazine.

Stewart has a BA in art education from the University of Iowa and an MSEd in counseling from Western Illinois University. After working extensively with adolescents in education and counseling for over thirty years, she is now a full-time artist working out of her studio in Iowa.
