The Dutch Masters and Italian Renaissance painters left an indelible imprint on Deborah as she explored the personal context of self-expression in her art. A reverence for painters of the past is evident in her work, where old world style combines with contemporary images in dream-like worlds rich with symbolism. Van Auten has spent her adult years in San Francisco, London, Boston, and New York where she studied at the Art Students League, School of Visual Arts, and was awarded a scholarship to the Salmagundi Club.

The award-winning work of Van Auten is in many private collections, and has been exhibited nationally. She has been featured in such publications as Art News, Art in America, American Art Collector, Southwest Art Magazine, Who’s Who in Visual Art, The Boston Globe, among others.

"My work delves into the intangible aspect of the tangible. I think of my paintings as dreamscapes, or psychological environments, that can hopefully provide a platform for reflection and discovery. The figure is used metaphorically, with a penchant for the absurd."

I am still painting full time in my studio provided by Boston Center for the Arts, in the St. Cloud Building.
