Debbie Bakker
I feel wonderment and joy in the smallest of things: sun sparkling on crystal, shadows & light, softly curling petals. 

I see it all, and it fills me with joy! And this feeling is what I try to capture in my paintings. 

My mission is to inspire others to access this wonderment in their everyday life.
