I first noticed Deborah’s art at The Gallery at Round Top.  I beieve it was “Girls’ Night Out.”  I was immediately hooked:  great art with a sense of humor.  When I realized that she was originally from Alabama, I knew I had to ask her to be on my website.


Deborah Hill is a professional artist using water soluble art materials, collage and found objects interchangeably in her work. She paints imaginative images that are distinct and inventive yet immediately recognizable. Her assemblage/bricolage sculpture reflects the same esthetic and attention to subtle detail.

Drawing influence from common everyday events, nature and memory she uses a narrative approach to her work expressing snippets of time or a particular emotion. The artist prefers to record the ‘story’ or metaphor with a subconscious interpretation rather than what is physically seen with the eye.

Deborah’s art career began early with wax crayons and large freshly painted sheetrock walls (this was discouraged) quickly moving on to graphite pencils and wide ruled notebook paper she pressed on, honing her skills. Life took on new meaning with plastic brushes and a tiny set of pan paints, the request for 'paper with no lines' was granted-further expanding potentiality. Her art story continues to unfold as she progresses toward more sophisticated tools and materials.

The artist is from the Appalachian foothills of Alabama, she has been in Texas since 1992 and currently maintains a studio in Cypress, Texas. 



Deborah’s Galleries:

Laughing Crow Art Studio

12802 McSwain Cypress, Texas 77429


“My studio space is located northwest of Houston minutes from Hwy 249 and 290 in the heart of Cypress, Texas on the beautiful grounds of The Purple Elephant Gallery of Artists.  The main building is a multi-use space for classes and workshops. The complex currently has seven other studio spaces with a diverse group of working artists all under the cooling shade of mature oaks.  This is a magical place with amazing energy and I'm so pleased to be here with such a wonderful group of artists.

“Laughing Crow studio is open by appointment and certainly open if I'm there. The classes are held in the communal building with the occasional private lesson in my studio. It is a working studio so unless it's been spruced up for an event it may look like......well.....like an artist is at work.”
