Deborah Flood was brought up on an Appaloosa Horse farm, in Maine, where she started riding at the age of 3. That is also when she started drawing them.
Flood’s bright colors, yet strong attention to detail and the ability to handle watercolor with an emotional twist, along with an extensive knowledge of horse anatomy and behavior, has Collectors actively seeking her work throughout the United States and Internationally.
Flood is a prolific artist, using the medium of Watercolor on paper, in the traditional manner of layering transparent color, which allows the color below to glow through.
She is known for whimsical yet accurate details of children and adults interacting with horses in a Western setting.
Flood enjoys studying the play of light on colors, out in the landscape, and painting every day.
Flood works from her own reference material, gathered out in the field, and from her experiences she has encountered throughout her life. Client images are sparingly used for commissioned based work.
