“The dedication of discovery can be as intense and ever-changing as the weather. Capturing and expressing the energetic influences of orchards, farms, hillsides, beaches and vineyards can be found in my interpretations like a vibrant recipe of movement and style.”


Debra Sanborn’s art over the last four decades has layered time and experiences as the main ingredient in her paintings. Each day presents spontaneous opportunities in this northern Michigan paradise to paint bold exchanges of colour as a guide to her ongoing conversations with nature.

Debra’s work can be found at Peninsula Studios (located in downtown Traverse City, Michigan, on the corner of Front and Union). Her work is also featured at Betsie Bay Furniture in Frankfort and Washington Street Gallery in Ann Arbor.
