An ethereal heart with luxurious gold leaf by Santa Fe’s own Deborah Corbett.
“Raised on an island in Casco Bay Maine, I moved to the high desert of Santa Fe, New Mexico four years ago. After graduating from the Institute of American Indian Arts with a BFA in Ceramic Sculpture my career has moved from that of a graphic designer to a creator of mythical art. I could be considered a “Late Bloomer” but it seems to me that I have just been continuously unfolding, expanding and discovering who I truly am all along the way.
With a background in antique furniture restoration, my aesthetic has always been in the character of old finishes; appreciating their preservation. It is the beauty of the imperfect and the impressions of age that intrigue me. It is as if time has laid its hand upon a piece. I interpret this as a benediction from the past.” Deborah Corbett
