Welcome to Deb Smith Illustration. I’m an East Coast born and raised gal, but currently I live in the northwest corner of the United States. The PNW is such a beautiful place from the mountains to the rainforests to the ocean, I love every bit of it.
I have always loved to sketch and draw and I still cherish the moments when I have sketchpad and a slew of pencils in front of me, but most of my work now is digital.
I’m a Graphic Designer by choice, but early on I found that I really loved illustrating and have focused most of my time in illustration. I really dig the opportunities I have to put design and illustration together, it soothes both sides of my brain. :-).
I am mostly self taught in art and illustration and I think my style shows all the different influences I’ve taken in. I am constantly, like everyday constantly, developing new skills, techniques and putting ideas to the test. I find myself creating a variety of art catering mostly to children and women.
My art is whimsical, stylish and decorative. I love that my pieces can vary in style but still say Deb through color, texture and detail. I work in multiple platforms within the digital realm including the Adobe Creative Suite, but my favorites are Affinity Designer and Procreate.
Feel free to look around and don’t forget to check out my Instagram for pieces I’m working on or other goofy stuff.
