Deborah Zibah



DEBBIE ZIBAH – ARTIST STATEMENT

I am an exuberant character, driven by passion and purpose in an irrepressible quest for excellence in my work ethic and personal life.

My work exudes strong form, with no apologies for the intensity of colour bombarding the viewers’ senses. There is a constant longing to experiment with new materials, to discover new concepts and fuelled impetuousness as each boundary is blistered and fresh ground is ravished. It is my passion, my love and what I do best. I am in love with our Amazing Creator, Jesus Christ, and His incredible gifts of creativity and creation.

For me, life has to be lived extravagantly, to the nth degree, and I am constantly striving for better, more effective ways to visually demonstrate my experience and appreciation of nature and it’s Creator.
