Deborah Stern: Reverberation

Deborah Stern has lived throughout the US, currently residing in the Arizona desert. She received a BFA in painting from the San Francisco Art Institute, mentored by the great Bay Area painter Julius Hatofsky, and an MFA from the University of Pennsylvania. She is a prolific multimedia painter, impossible to label by style, having produced over 23,000 drawings for one solo exhibition, a 108’ painting for another, and most recently exhibited 23 scroll paintings, each 108” x 29”.

“…(Stern) has always been incredibly productive and tenacious. She produces a vast amount of work…this is a painter to be seen again and again and will become a painter of great note.” — Neil Welliver, March 1998, Lincolnville, Maine

“…creating the image with her brush and her brusque no-nonsense of color…the paintings were a threshold into a larger world yet uncharted but intriguing and awe-inspiring.” — Robert Sievert. December 2007, Artezine, NYC
