Two Ferry Stops on the River Bend 
500x600mm

This painting was commissioned for a family who wanted their yellow home to be surrounded by various local, iconic “Queenslander” style houses.

The piece also includes the children’s 150 year old Bulimba State School, 2 local churches, the well known Riverbend Book Shop, Bulimba House, Brisbane Powerhouse and both the Bulimba and Hawthorne Ferry Terminals.

The children play in a large fig tree alongside their local soccer field grandstand in Memorial Park Bulimba.

School uniforms hang on the clothesline under the window of their house.

The family love the confetti-like display that Jacaranda and Ponciana trees give to Brisbane at certain times of the year.

This painting was chosen as the artwork to promote The Bulimba Festival 2015.

What Clients are Saying

 

Our family and friends commissioned Debra to paint a special gift for my Mother in Law’s 80th birthday almost 6 years ago.
Alma has lived in Bulimba all her life and we chose Debra to paint a personal keepsake with buildings of special significance to our family.
We were delighted with the finished painting.  This is a timeline of our families lives in Bulimba over her 80 + years.
We provided Debra with  photos of houses, a list of  buildings to be painted including the Uniting Church, School buildings, grand stand, ferry terminal and houses we grew up in and lived to name a few.
We were amazed with Debra’s detail from the wrought iron furniture, vintage car and even our dog Monty sitting on the front balcony!  Debra’s eye for detail is amazing.
We could not of chosen a more personal, timeless keepsake with special memories to treasure.

A few years ago I noticed the most beautiful art works being displayed in some of the local Bulimba establishments, and was so delighted by them. These paintings captured the beauty of the Bulimba area, and the iconic local buildings.
For a special birthday I asked Debra for a painting of my own house. She incorporated all of the Bulimba spots that were of importance to myself and to my family,  the cricket grandstand, ferry house, and my favourite  local independent bookstore.
I have lived in the Bulimba area all of my life , and I attended the local school, as did my four children so Debra also included  the Bulimba school .
Debra painted the most beautiful art work and consulted with me on what was most important to capture. This art work has pride of place in my home. Debra even painted my daughters cat resting on our front deck.
Debras paintings  are so special and are marvellous keepsakes.
