Deborah Tilby

Mastrius Master Artist
One of the top oil painters in Canada, Mastrius Master DEBORAH TILBY believes it’s the striving and struggle of creation that keeps painting interesting.

“At one point, I can expect my feelings of exhilaration to evaporate,” she says, “as I realize I’ve lost the plot and it’s not working out.” But overcoming these inevitable hurdles is what makes painting fascinating and fulfilling.

Much of Deborah’s success comes from a great mix of study, practice, and teaching over the last FOUR decades. She is a big believer in lifelong growth, always, always striving to get better at what I’m doing.”

Deborah loves to pass on what she’s learned to artists developing their skills in oil. In fact, her absolute favourite artists to teach are those at the beginning of their painting journey!

She is an amazing ally, example, and guide for ASPIRING ARTISTS looking to grow both their painting skills and their capacity to create.
