I live in a place of great beauty, surrounded by nature on all sides. It's
these wonders of nature that bring light to my soul no matter what life
brings. My nature-based work is a metaphor for the natural beauty that surrounds us and what we can learn from it.
Deby Harvey began formal art studies in the late 1970s at the University of
Wisconsin, Milwaukee. She has worked in a number of mediums through the
years, all with a common theme - nature. Her varied art career includes
diverse work in pottery, fibers, jewelry and most recently hollowware,
forged copper combined into organic sculptural pieces. Her recent series of
sculptural copper leaves are a combination of the real and imagined worlds, which offer nature's movement and grace in a familiar shape.
