“Follow The Leader” by Deb LaFogg Docherty




Deborah LaFogg Docherty combines two great loves: nature and painting.  Most of what she paints is from life experiences. Her use of light, color, composition, texture, and atmosphere help bring the viewer into the secret world of how animals live, raise their young, court and survive in the wild. Deb is also an instructor at Delray Center for the Arts.
AFFILIATIONS: Signature Member of the Artists for Conservation, Signature Member of the Pastel Society of America, Elected member of the Audubon Artists, Associate Member of the Society of Animal Artists
