"One of my great joys is creating a piece that captures someone’s essence, whether it be in fabric or paint. 

This gives me the chance to get to know you in a unique way.


For me the relationships I develop in this process are paramount."

Special Orders - commissions

For those who are intrigued by the prospect of having a painting or a fabric piece designed for them, I do offer this option.  The process can be done in person or online and begins with some basic questions about size, medium, color feel, etc.  Once the basic parameters have been established we will begin a process of discovering the essence of the piece you want designed.  That's where the real fun begins!  For me this is all about an opportunity for a real connection with you.  We can do this either in person or online, and may take as much as an hour or more.  Consider having a "Soul Portrait" of yourself in fabric.  To read more about soul portraits click here.

"I was blessed to take a session with Debra Hillard a few years ago, and it was cathartic. She was able to get to know my personal history, especially the people that were most influential in my life and my experiences, and be able to channel this into the most beautiful painting. It sits now in my bedroom, and is the first thing I see when I arise every morning. It brings me peace and fills me with gratitude. She also gifted me with a beautiful scarf that was made of the same painting, and I wear it on all of my special occasions. I can say that Debra is a gifted artist that has an extraordinary process that expresses her passion as well as her intuitive insight in others.

I highly recommend her."
