My name is Debra Vanderlaan. I split my time between the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina and the tropical coast of South Florida with my husband Dave who is part of our photography team and our four little dogs, three small dachshunds and a rescued Fox Terrier.
My main focus is landscape photography and also vintage subjects such as old trucks, barns, and bicycles. I use interesting processes and textures in my work and clients often think my images look like paintings when seen at art fairs and shows.
I am mostly self-taught and am proficient in Photoshop and Lightroom as well as other interesting digital software programs. I am a very well-rounded artist with a huge gallery of assorted and arresting images, from beach scenes to mountain lakes to vintage subjects.
Many of my photography scenes are full of the joy of life and create a relaxing and happy mood. My goal is to surprise and delight the viewer of my work!
