In the 1980’s and 1990’s Debra Keirce was a biochemical engineer. Debra pursued a self-directed art education in earnest. In 2010, she turned her passion for painting classical realism into a full time career. Keirce’s tightly rendered oil paintings often include references to her engineering past.
Debra’s work has been featured in numerous print publications, solo and group exhibitions. WaterWorks Art Museum, Yellowstone Art Museum, Customs House Museum, Perigord Retreats in France, and Amazon Web Services have her work in their permanent collections.
A Note from the Artist about “Water Adventures”:
“I have had a “Hidden Painting” series in my head for awhile now. This is the first in it that I have painted. It is actually 2 oil paintings on panels, mounted with velcro (so you can easily remove them and reframe them traditionally.) They are mounted in a vintage key cupboard. The outside painting is 7″ x 4 1/2″ and the inside painting is 10″ x 7″. It can sit on a shelf or mantle or table. It can hang on a wall via a wired back. In either position, you can open or close the cupboard to display the painting inside if you choose.
In the 17th century, paintings were often displayed behind curtains or inside cupboards. This protected the art from dust and vermin, but it also kept art hidden from certain audiences. Given the morality, politics, and sensitivities of the culture, it was often inappropriate for paintings to be seen by every visitor.”Debra Keirce
