About the Artist

Debbie Hughes
Member Since November 2016

Projects: I have been creating illustrations for Books, magazines, web, collectible game cards, interactive games and advertising since 1981. I have also worked in the gaming industry doing illustration and animation. My work has been Science Fiction and Fantasy categorically, however, I am now experimenting with a type of realism that branches out from my years of working in the SF and fantasy field. I catergorize my works as fantastic realism or magic realism and I plan to explore more ideas in this area. For the most part, my personal works parallel my life, my struggles and my triumphs but I also try to reflect on the world around me.

The Dreaming Tree was created in my series of paintings about our environment. Along with the fear of increasing storms and cataclysmic changes happening currently, there is also revelations about a type of communication that occurs amongst plant life. Trees can communicate through their root system. They communicate with each other and they also protect other trees. My piece is meant to show plant life as having a consciousness all their own, however, there is also a sense of uneasiness with the tree broken from the ground and hovering above the clouds.
