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.
