Deb Covington received her formal training from Ringling School of Art, in Sarasota Florida in the late 60's. Shortly thereafter, she married her husband and raised 2 children.  During this time, she continued her painting and showed her work in several galleries in Greensboro, Winston-Salem, and High Point NC. She received many awards including the Greensboro Chamber of Commerce Purchase Award, the Novant Health Purchase Award and the Award of Excellence with the Degas Pastel Society.  Deb also worked as an art director at The Alderman Company, then she and her husband opened a business, Covington Supply, Inc, in High Point selling janitorial and maintenance supplies.  They both retired after 25 years and now reside in Emerald Isle, NC.  Deb is a member of the Pastel Society of NC and the Pastel Society of America.

ABOUT MY WORK

Most of my work is in pastel and oils, as I love to draw.  Whether I paint a landscape, still life, or a portrait, I approach each painting the same.  I study the contrasts, composition, lines, light, movement and color.  I've always been attracted to patterns as they create an ebb and flow to the work.
