About Me

Outside in My Gardens

Debra Lee hellwig

Hello and welcome to my website!

As you can see, I love animals. I also love nature and the colors and textures found in nature. I have created a beautiful space for nature in my yard where all types of animals and birds keep me company every day.

As a fulltime artist doing art fairs for over 35 years after getting my art degree from UW-Oshkosh. I have painted all types of beautiful things inspired by my gardens and trips to see animals in their natural habitats.

I am an experimental artist  using the knowledge, experience and intuition I have gained through  many years of perfecting my art to create beautiful art that connects to you and my audience.  

I use mainly water-media like watercolor and acrylic but look closely and you might also see colored pencil, pastel or even collage! 

I hope you enjoy my seeing my creations and feel free to contact me with questions or comments. I would love to hear from you!   

My other passion is the canvases in nature outside in our lovely property which runs next to a river and over the years I have added  large flower beds and rock gardens that accommodate all the wild animals that also inhabit this space. Lots of color that changes daily throughout the growing season keeps us busy year long.
