My name is Deb Antonick. I live in beautiful Penticton, British Columbia, Canada with my recently retired husband and a fur child named "Miss Lily". My husband and I renovated his child hood home that was built by his father in 1946 and are living a quiet and relaxing life surrounded by orchards, Wineries and beaches. When not painting I will often travel to Calgary, Alberta to visit my 2 beautiful grand boys.
My painting journey began in 1990. From the first time, I picked up a brush I was hooked. I painted for craft sales and taught classes at Michaels for 5 years. Since then I have gone on to be one of the original-founding members of Painting with Friends, the brainchild of my friend Terrye French. Terrye French is my greatest inspiration and I credit Terrye French’s encouragement and friendship for all of my success. Sadly, Terrye passed away in November 2014, she left a very large hole in my heart. With her family’s support, I have continued on with the Painting with Friends and am very honored to continue my designs in her memory.
I am very proud to be a DecoArt Helping Artist, DecoArt Art Room Design member and an FM Dynasty Brush Artisan.
My designs can be found in several back issues of Paintworks and Paint-it-Today Magazines as well as the new Online Magazines Pixelated Palette and the Painting E-zine. I have several designs published in the new Painting World Magazine.
My printed patterns are available through many of the top resellers including Bear with Us, Viking Wood Crafts, CD Wood, Creative Arts Lifestyle (Patricia Rawlinson), Stockade and Artist Club. I have 3 “Touch of Primsy” painting books published along with several combined artist books.
I have several conventions that I annually attend including Vegas, HOOT and Seattle/Portland and SDP "National" and the new Painting Palooza in Oklahoma. If you are planning to attend any these, please stop by and say hi and you will quite often fine me demoing in the Stampendous booth.
