Through accident or design, you’ve arrived at the website for Huckleberry Farm Studios. We are Deborah DeWit, artist, and Carl Vandervoort, filmmaker and potter.
Please wander through the results of our 40 year love of image making, past and recent paintings, pastels, photographs, books and films. Here you will also be able to read about the restoration of Huckleberry Farm, the gone wild land and rustic but stately house we purchased in 2009. A project of creation and love, it is a central part of both our lives and our careers, and continues to inspire images and stories. We hope you enjoy visiting our world.
I’m really happy to announce that I will be having a show of new paintings at White Bird Gallery in Cannon Beach in March of 2024. It may seem like a long way off, but it takes time and intention to create a body of work substantial enough for a gallery exhibit and I’m looking forward to a year of focus.
I’m proud to share that Resurgence & Ecologist, the climate justice publication of the The Resurgence Trust educational charity in Devon, England is once again featuring my work in their March/April issue. Please click here to learn more about them and see a taste of the of the magazine.
The center story, “A Cry from the Heart”, which you can see on the home page of the website features my painting “Words in the Wind”. I’m especially delighted this time to be in the same issue with an article by Iain McGilchrist, eminent neuropsychiatrist and author of The Matter with Things and The Master and His Emissary, both of which I have read and been inspired by.
Thank you for visiting our website. Please email us if you wish to be on our mailing list, or with any questions or comments you might have. Soon we’ll post more information about shows and other news.
And don’t forget to check out the Studio Store if you’re interested in purchasing notecards, prints, books, dvd’s or calendars.
Deborah and Carl
