Deborah Bigeleisen Florida | Oil Paintings

Deborah grew up in Los Angeles, graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and enjoyed working in fashion and textiles before becoming a full-time artist. After a very successful career as founder and CEO of a global textile company, she moved to Florida where her other artistic talent was unleashed. Deborah was mentored by acclaimed technical master Sam Perry and guided by renowned visionary Gordon Parks. She also completed rigorous training through Master Artist Workshops. These included several classes led by internationally acclaimed Canadian painter Tom Hopkins. Flowers and nature have been the inspiration for Deborah’s artistic expression since childhood, and are the common thread that weaves through both careers. She continues to be captivated by natural forms, having begun her art career by painting Rembrandt-like portraits of illuminated white roses. She credits her discovery of fractals for totally transforming her vision. By stripping away the mask of the exterior form and magnifying her image beyond what is recognizable to the naked eye, her subject is no longer simply a flower.

Artist Statement "I am influenced by Impressionism and the brighter 'colorist' palette and generally specialize in urban architectural subjects. I use my own photographs as reference as well as painting 'en plein air.' My creative intentions are to put the viewer in the scene, transforming their mood through color and composition. I'm attracted to scenes where the subjects are dramatically lit, which adds a vibrancy and a sense of immediacy to my paintings. I bring my passion for drawing into my work; applying the oils freely and liberally over vibrantly toned underpaintings. I believe that a work of art has a longer 'wall life' when the viewer continually finds something new in the work, and the paint, itself, is allowed to do the talking.� 7106 East Main Street Scottsdale | AZ 85251 www.marshall-lekaegallery.com | 480-970-3111

These are tips for cleaning glass art from Bernard Katz’s Tips fo artist Bernard Katz to help prevent damage while cleaning hand-blown glass art. DO NOT use the dishwasher!

Generally, hand-blown art glass is sensitive to extreme temperature changes, which is how dishwashers work. Very expensive glass sculptures in a dishwasher can crack the glass. DO NOT use abrasive cleaners and products!

Don’t use abrasive chemical cleansers or steel wool cleaning pads. Even though glass is considered a durable material, the surface is much ‘softer’ than a person might assume. Rubbing glass against coarse dirt and debris is probably the most common cause for scratches. DO NOT wear jewelry!

Most people know diamonds can scratch glass – so can rings, wedding bands, watches, and bracelets. Katz rates jewelry in his top ten causes for art glass damage. Dusting

Most of the time just a simple dusting with a feather duster is all that’s needed. The

Tip - Using a soft, dry paint brush is a great way to dust hard to reach hard-to-reach areas while cleaning glass artwork.

or Cleaning Glass Art Removing Fingerprints Spraying glass cleaner onto a paper towel or soft clean cloth is the easiest and best way to clean off greasy fingerprints. Cleaning sandblasted and frosted glass

Katz’s glass sculptures have a protective coating on the sandblasted surfaces that helps keep fingerprint oils from penetrating into the frosted surface. This coating makes cleaning very easy with glass cleaner and paper towels. Soap and water method

Tip – Place a foam pad in the bottom of the sink in case the glass slips while cleaning. Foam kneeling pads used for gardening work great.

Not all glass will have a protective coating. The best method Katz has found is simpy using everyday dish detergent and lukewarm water. After washing glass, wipe it dry to avoid water stains, which can be difficult to remove. These tips do not cover everything! Artists use many techniques, some of which require special care. So, when in doubt about how to clean your glass artwork, contact your art consultant or the artist for the best cleaning methods.
