Debra Hunter is an artist, photographer and craftsperson. She creates hand knit and naturally dyed items. She focuses on items for the home, plus wearable items. Yarns used for knitting are all hand-dyed in micro batches in hand crafted natural dyes; some dyes even come from the garden such as the marigold and goldenrod dyes. Items crafted from wool are made of 100% Canadian produced and milled wool. Knit items often feature distinctive “stranded knitting” using several separate colors to produce creative patterns.
Debra’s art, primarily painting along with fibre art, is nature based and inspired by the natural areas of Alberta and British Columbia (Canada). Paintings explore natural places while fibre art explores using natural dyes. Trees and plants are a reoccurring subject matter, as is the strong use of color, line and pattern.
Debra is also a professional photographer. While her business for many years has focused on portraiture, her true love is photographing nature. Mountains, the ocean, and wildflowers are favorite themes. She also has a certain fondness for classic black and white.
Debra resides in Red Deer, Alberta in addition to Pender Island, BC and Lac Ste. Anne County, AB.
