Debra Hood Art

As a resident of inner-city Brisbane, Debra Hood paints her connection to the city, the river and the iconic Queenslander houses. These 'Timber and Tin' buildings, as they are affectionately called, provide an endless narrative for her paintings, as does the abundantly colourful flora of Brisbane. Debra aims to bring joy to the viewer and a sense of childhood nostalgia as they search to find tiny hidden secrets amongst the foliage, or daydream about life inside the houses.

These works are then designed into an array of iconic Brisbane giftware, such as teatowels, magnets, shirts, colouring books and silk scarves. All showing the love for Brisbane’s unique style and colour
