Deborah Brosen is a self-taught artist from upstate New York. She resides in Kinderhook, with her husband John. They share a passion for wildlife and the outdoors. Their camping, canoeing, hiking, hunting, and outdoor adventures provide both inspiration and resource materials for her work.
Debbie's interest in art began when she was a young girl. Her parents, Carole and the late Bud Ganson, encouraged this interest. As her talent grew Debbie's father told her "she had a talent from God and it should not be wasted." So Debbie continued to paint and share her passion with others.
Her work consists primarily of paintings of wildlife, landscapes, and pet portraits. Debbie's paintings can be found on many different surfaces, such as canvas, saw blades, tree fungus, antlers, game calls, and wood. She also enjoys drawing scenes of nature in graphite (pencil). Her primary focus shifted about 25 years ago when her desire to create her own niche in the art world, led Debbie to choosing the wild turkey feather as her canvas of choice.
The realistic, detailed approach that Debbie has mastered has drawn much attention to her work. She has supported many hunting and sporting organizations through her work, such as the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Ruffed Grouse Society, Safari Club International, National Wild Turkey Federation and Ducks Unlimited. Debbie was named Artist of the Year by the NY 4H Shooters Sports in 2011, and was also their Featured Artist in 2012. (Details on this honor can be found on the "Artist of the Year" Section of this site.)
In 2012 Debbie was bestowed another honor when she was selected to paint for the NYS Big Buck Club to paint the largest non-typical buck taken by gun in New York State.
Debbie and John display her artwork at various sportsman shows and craft fairs throughout the United States. They offer original paintings and drawings, prints, note cards and bookmarks. Debbie also takes orders for original, custom work. She creates personal treasurers of cherished pets, hunting memories and more with her feather art. John meticulously frames all of the art work and offers a wide selection of mat and framing options.
