DEBBIE WARDROPE is a Bay Area native and longtime Pleasanton resident who has always loved art and has been painting for most of her life even while pursuing other career interests.
Debbie is a signature member of the Pastel Society of the West Coast, teaches pastel painting classes, and conducts workshops for several art associations. Her work has been recognized, awarded, and exhibited at the Alameda County Fair, the Art Expo in New York as well as in a number of galleries from Yountville to Carmel. Her work is represented by Studio 7 Fine Arts in Pleasanton. One of her honored achievements occurred when her painting, “Pleasanton Evening” was selected by Senator Ellen Corbett to represent her district and be displayed at the state capitol building in Sacramento.
Of her artistic philosophy, Debbie states, “I believe that art should be beautiful, accessible, and evoke an emotional response in the viewer. I strive to create images that are immediately recognizable but are things that are frequently overlooked in the rush of everyday life. I love to capture a moment in time through the use of light and color.”
Debbie will be painting a nocturne city scene in pastel on black UArt sanded pastel paper.
