NEW WEBSITE FOR DE! From October 2013, new work will be on the new website - www.degillett.com.au
Welcome to the visual world of unfettered emotion that is the work of artist Debra Elizabeth Gillett- known as De.
De's recklessly sumptuous practice is a kaleidoscope of colour, energy and motion with works running the gamut from a heightened photorealism to a joyously wild and expressionistic interpretation of Australia's tropics; Birds in flight, bodies dancing, portraits, nudes, Queensland landscapes and Australian flora are some of the varied subject matter explored by this self-taught artist.
De Gillett has self-identified as an artist since the tender age of 7, and has continued since that point to endlessly pursue her own unique and passionate interpretation of this abundant world.Having reached the highest point of what she felt she could achieve without formal training, in 2010 De commenced her long lusted after Bachelor of Visual Arts at Queensland College of Arts, Brisbane. (Griffith University, Southbank Campus), and has now attained that goal with a Grade Point Average of 6.33.
