Watercolor by Deborah Hoeper
 Barbara Steinacker          

Barbara has been a representational portrait and landscape painter, working in pastels, for more than 20 years. Recently, she has taken on the challenge of moving toward abstraction. She is finding this move to be not only challenging, but exciting and freeing as well.  “I don’t necessarily know where the next stroke is coming from or what direction the painting will take.  It’s an adventure.”  With her new work, Steinacker considers the importance of all of the elements of art, such as color, value, balance, line, focus, skillful use of materials, with the added impact of mystery, emotion, mood, spirit, playfulness, and adventure.

In addition to The Artists’ Gallery, she also exhibits her work at Horse Spirit Gallery in Glen Elg, Still Life Gallery in Ellicott City, and The Art League Gallery in Alexandria, Virginia.

She was recently juried in as an Associate Member of the Pastel Society of America in New York, NY.

Deborah Hoeper

Deborah began her career as a representational painter, but her recent landscapes are more abstract than realistic. “I enjoy creating subtle changes in color rather than changes of value. My paintings are based upon an emotional reaction to the landscape and I strive to capture the illusion of place, or a mysterious scene. A successful painting is one that creates a connection for both the artist and the observer.”

Hoeper is a local Maryland artist and a native West Virginian. A charter member of Artists’ Gallery, she has also had a studio at Passageways, in Riverdale, Maryland, for twenty years and exhibits her work in many local galleries. She is an artist member of the Baltimore Watercolor Society.
