Deborah Stein is a living artist, illustrator and activist in New York City. Her recent works on paper with water, paint and mixed pigments are experimentations exploring relationships between landscape and humaness.
Making images is a way to feel through emotions she believes exist in the natural world and investigate our connections and disassociations to it. She says it's a way to organize hope and discomfort and loop us into stories that take us through the complexities and eccentricities of nature's phases and cycles. She uses drawing and handwriting to approach, question and navigate ideas about awe, chaos, politics, death, beauty, ownership, time, and survival.
She's collaborating with Tamika Rivera on Here Projects, runs the Women's March NYC Arts and Events Page and is part of the NYC based art collective We Make America. In January 2017 she worked with the Women's March-NYC Chapter as Arts & Events coordinator and raised over $2500 with the sale of her prints for the Women's March and the National Institute for Reproductive Heath. She is writing this now and isn't sure why it's in the third person.

Her site One Awesome Thing is about creativity, life and hard human being stuff which is great and you should visit there as soon as you're done here.
She is the proprietor and creator of the Bonbon Oiseau Workshop, designing jewelry and other works in NYC since 2004.
