Deborah Flood’s accurate yet painterly Watercolors, of Equine and Western Themed Genre, have garnered her many Western Museum Exhibits.
Deborah Flood was brought up on an Appaloosa Horse farm, in Maine, where she started riding at the age of 3. She continued to ride
and work with the horses until her early 20's. During those early years, she also kept drawing and painting the horse, and to this
day, she still paints the bonds that humans have with them.
Flood’s bright colors, yet strong attention to detail and the ability
to handle watercolor with an emotional twist, along with an extensive knowledge of horse anatomy and behavior, has Collectors actively
seeking her work throughout the United States and Internationally.
Flood is known for whimsical yet accurate details of children and
adults interacting with horses in a Western setting. Though she hails from the Eastern side of the USA, living in Maine, she is drawn
to paint the Western landscape and subject matter. Her goal is to portray the emotional bond between horse, human and the land.
