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. Our studios are named after the place we lived and worked for 14 years here on the North Oregon Coast. The restoration of its wild land and 100 year old house was a labor of love that shaped us and our work in unforgettable ways. Earlier posts on this site tell that story. In April of 2023 we moved from there, but have retained the name of the place we loved so much–Huckleberry Farm. We have stayed in the community having been embraced by it, as much as by the winds off the Pacific Ocean. The story continues.

This Summer I will be participating in the Manzanita Hoffman Center’s second annual Studio Tour

July 20th, 11-5

Fifteen local studios will open their doors to the public for a whirlwind one day look into the lives and work of some of Oregon’s most accomplished artists and craftspeople. For information and tickets please visit the Hoffman Center website https://hoffmanarts.org/events/artist-studio-tour-2/?

Many of the paintings in my spring show at White Bird Gallery are sold, but you can see what’s left if you visit the gallery this summer as well as the new collection of poems inspired by the show
entitled “Cherish and Release”
by Kim Stafford, Oregon Poet Laureate (2018-2020)
You can purchase a copy of Kim’s book at the gallery or here

You can view the paintings here on the Paintings & Photographs page at the White Bird 2024 tag

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.

Best Wishes,
Deborah and Carl
