The fundamental underpinning of my art is void of any preconceived ideas. I allow each piece to define itself based on a fully intuitive process. I create a traditional or digital canvas full of bold colors and chaotic textures and await the image to be culled from the fantastical realm of imagination.
I often employ blind contour drawing in my work because the freedom of movement conveys the raw, authentic result I have in mind. I approach my subjects in a whimsical, multi-layered way, using daily experiences and my direct environment as a strong influence.
Experimenting with different mediums alleviates any creative stagnation and helps me to be radically prolific, creating unique, exciting designs. I have come to trust my creative process and look forward to sharing future conceptions.
Detroit artist Debbee Lotito works in an array of mixed media, including acrylics, watercolor, ink, pastels, and pencil.
Lotito's consistently stunning works on paper fuse a subtle minimalism with organic figuration and translucent, bleeding waves of color. Her works are whimsical, expressive and engage the viewer via a lucid reservoir of imagination.
