An Interview with Deb Weiers.

Who and where are you from?

My name is Deb Weiers, I am a mixed media artist, and I live in the country outside of Red Deer, Alberta, Canada.

How you got into this?

I had my first art class in Grade 6 and fell in love immediately.  I have 'dabbled' at creating here and there throughout my whole life.  In 2001 I enrolled in the Visual Arts 2 year program at our local college (Red Deer College) and it was the best thing I ever did - I LOVED it!!   However, life got in the way again and I didn't start working on a daily basis until 2011.  

What is your driving force?

My driving force is my love of creating.  Every piece is a 'problem solving' event for me and I am constantly challenged to try to get it to 'work'.  I love the journey.

What kind of work you do and why?

I do mixed media work, a lot of it is focused on faces and figurative, it is often abstract and I like adding distortion.  I love things that are odd or different.  

Tell us more about your thought process.

My pieces are often a reflection of current events or what is going on around me or a reflection of my ancestors and my history.  I believe everyone deals with pain of some sort in their life and I try to have some sort of emotional connection to the viewer in my work.

Please share with us the one modern artist whose work you find Interesting and why?

I adore Linda Vachon's work!!!  She achieves so much emotion in her work and I find her work visually stunning!
