Deborah Geurtze is an artist/printmaker whose intricate etchings and monotypes reflect her deep connection with nature, a force that directs both her life and her work. In describing her work, the artist notes, "Wilderness – its patterns and complexity – are a continual source of inspiration. My panoramas explore the ever changing natural world and give expression to themes of passage –from dark to light, along a country road, from man-made to overgrown, chaotic splendor."
Deborah Geurtze attended Rhode Island School of Design and studied printmaking with Robert Bero at the State University College of Potsdam, N.Y.
After teaching abroad at the American school of Tangier, Morocco, and at Vail (Co.) Mountain School, she returned to upstate New York, and established her studio in an historic 1838 Greek revival "mansion", where she worked for 25 years. In 2011 Deborah moved to Rocky Neck.
