“Starbucks, Cap. Mall”  2017 DS

Deborah T.’s Bio:

– Web designer, business coach

– Paints watercolour animals, landscapes

– Has lived in Vancouver for 20 years

We met at Starbucks for the interview. Deborah T. let me know that she has travelled the world taking groups with her. She held ‘café talks’ to find interested solo travellers for her trips. She complimented me on the genuine followers I have for my blog.

The Art:

– An oil painting, 24” x 24”, hangs above her living room sofa

So the meaning of the art piece she chose to discuss dawned on me gradually as she described her experience of art.

Deborah met the talented artist Amy Joy Dyck, through a coaching client on the balloon trip. The trip was a birthday gift to her partner from his family. She commissioned a unique piece of art from someone really talented as a way to preserve this memory.

Deborah wants to give a shout out to Amy:
