    Daina Deblette | Canadian Artist
    Having grown up living on the shores of the Kapuskasing River as it moved powerfully into James Bay, my connection to the land and the water is primary in my being. I’m a figurative artist who paints experiences in our lives, capturing those magical moments where we are immersed in our passion for attuning with nature.

    Each of my chosen mediums (there are many!) have allowed me to fully express my experiences with each subject; they’ve continued to challenge me, allowing me to grow beyond my boundaries, nourishing me with excitement and joy.

    My original training at NSCAD University in 1994 was in photography and figure drawing, which I now use as tools and references to paint from. A life-changing moment led me to teach myself to oil paint in early 2003 from a little William Foster book; I was instantly hooked! I had my first solo show later that year.

    Having grown up living on the shores of the Kapuskasing River as it moved powerfully into James Bay, my connection to the land and the water is primary in my being. I’m a figurative artist who paints experiences in our lives, capturing those magical moments where we are immersed in our passion for attuning with nature.

    I studied drawing and photography at NSCAD from 1994-96. A self-taught, professional painter since 2003, and creative facilitator since 2006, I’ve taught over 1000 students of all ages across North and Central America.

    I work and play by the ocean near my home on Salt Spring Island, British Columbia.
