Deborah van Hattem-Koff is a local artist residing in beautiful Sooke BC.
Her inspiration comes from the ocean, traveling, nature, wildlife, love and the wonders and ‘myths’ of the Earth and Universe.
She has been teaching art classes and workshops since 2010 and has her own studio at the Langford Station Cultural District where she paints, teaches workshops and sells her art work from. Her favorite medium is acrylic paint.
After a 43 day life changing experience on the reality show “Survivor Netherlands” she decided to paint and create every day and made it her fulltime job with teaching artclasses and workshops, teaching art to kids and selling her art work from her little mini shop and studio.
“ My goal is to create ‘feel good’ art. I would like to inspire and heal people through my art work or by creating art with them. Art can be very therapeutic and healing and in my opinion everyone is an artist!”
