My art is display at Cafe Mignon in Leonia NJ through November
  • November 7, 2019

My art is on display this month with an artists reception 11/10/19 from 4-6pm. Much of my work, in particular my most recent pieces are available for purchase as 20″ wide prints for $25 plus shipping and handling. If local, I can provide work framed (cost very reasonable).

The piece above is entitled “language of bees.” It and all my recent work are stories based on awareness and interaction within relationships.

My medium is magazine paper and acrylics. The pieces evolve over time with images and messages becoming hidden, but important. In my butterfly series as well as my sunflowers, the messages became clear sometimes months later. With my recent work, the message is in the present. Each piece a snapshot of my thinking in the moment, though everyone sees something of themselves in them.

Butterfly Posters
  • September 29, 2019

I am creating posters from the butterfly series of 20 that I did from March 2018 – September 2018. They are $25 plus shipping and handling. Contact me for more info. Each panel is mounted on a 10″x10″ box and designed to be hung as a grouping. They chronicle a time in my life where to be truly happy, I needed to change. I changed. My wish is that other codependents like myself find the strength to take that first step into recovery. Reach out. Read. Reflect. Share. What can be, will be. You just have to believe.

I recommend these two books:
The Language of Letting Go – By Melody Beattie & The Secret – by Rhonda Byrne

I created this butterfly illustration, done in torn magazine paper with acrylic and glue on July 4, 2018. This poster is first in a series of motivational posters exploring the concept of change, love, life and happiness.

I have been working as “Hopping Media” since 1998 when I began  designing and building websites. It’s the right time to go back to just being Deborah Hopping.

 

Torn Paper as “paint”
  • November 15, 2018

Throughly enjoying using magazine paper torn into bits of color and texture. Using glue in thick brush strokes it looks like paint. I’m combining panels, adding dimension, and mounting them on wooden panels for display,

Terebinth tree logo created in illustrator

I’m very happy with the iconic image I created for a story project of a friend – “The Terebinth Trilogy.” I used illustrator but was able to keep the overall look in my own playful style

 

 

Butterfly Series
  • May 15, 2018

I’ve started a new project with magazine paper, pencil and acrylic paint. It’s hands on messy fun and suits my style perfectly. I start with a 10″ x 10″ canvas board and cover it with a collage of analogous images that I think of as “what lies beneath.” to create an abstract background. I use the magazine paper and thick glue; My plan is to mount a collection so that they become part of a much larger piece;
