Through accident or design, you’ve arrived at the website for Huckleberry Farm Studios. We are Deborah DeWit, artist, and Carl Vandervoort, filmmaker.

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.

The winter was a thoughtful time. After finishing a couple of large commissions at the end of 2021, having worked closely with clients to fulfill their wishes, I took the opportunity to depart from specifics and visually explore some non-visual ideas. Focusing on the idea of Thought–what that is, and how a thought or thoughts leave a trace in our palpable experience– four paintings happened in the studio. And while grappling with the unpicturable, I was drawn to the dark winter night and three paintings squeezed their way between thoughts on Thoughts. You can see them by clicking on Paintings & Photographs in the menu bar above. There are also some new note cards in our Studio Store, also in the menu bar above.

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.

And don’t forget to check out the Studio Store if you’re interested in purchasing notecards, prints, books, dvd’s or calendars.

Best Wishes,
Deborah and Carl
