I work in a variety of media, not limiting myself through choice of materials but using whatever is appropriate to convey the raw, authentic result I have in mind. 

 

When I begin a creation, I must act quickly to execute my thought-to-hand because the creative urge can pass as quickly as it arrives. My choice of medium typically is ink, watercolor and watered-down acrylics because they have a very fast dry-time and I really appreciate the chaotic element of the timeline. 

 

Allegory is important to my work, as my creations are abound with images culled from the fantastical realm of imagination. This allows me to approach a wide range of subjects in a multi-layered way. My daily experiences, the personal trials of my past, and my direct environment all have a part to play in my work. The use of line and bright colors is crucial to the raw emotion of each work of art and the subtle juxtaposition of color-to-emotion gives each piece a twist. 

Detroit artist, Debbee Lotito, works in an array of mixed media including watercolor, ink, pastel, pencil, and digal art. Lotito's consistently stunning works on paper fuse a subtle minimalism with organic figuration and translucent, bleeding waves of color. Her works are both aloof and systematic and engage the viewer via a willful and imaginary reservoir while incorporating conceptual and purely visual values within an infinitely layered and rich dialogue.
