Deborah Moss creates colourful and expressive paintings inspired by the natural beauty surrounding her countryside studios which are nestled into a native forest in North Auckland, New Zealand.
Moss’ semiabstract works are richly layered with stories that reveal a powerful alchemy of forces between the natural world and her interior vision.
Her approach to painting is experimental and process driven – a sensory experience which invites play and encourages the work to develop on its own accord through a response to surface discoveries.
The full time artist exhibits regularly in Australasia and has been a finalist in several national art awards. Her works are held in private collections in New Zealand and abroad.
Every time she sells an original artwork, a native tree is planted on her rural property as part of her “Planting hope” initiative to help the environment.
Moss graduated from the University of Auckland in 1994 with a Master of Arts (Hons) in Sociology.
