Each month we will feature an artist who uses the Trekell line of brushes!

Deb Kaylor


Deb has come a long way since first painting “cow portraits” while on her grandparents’ farm. After a long detour through teaching, raising a family and the corporate world, Deb finally was able to follow her passion and begin her studies at the Art Students League of Denver in 2004. In 2007 she gave up her “day job” and now makes her living as a fine artist.

Deb considers herself a representational painter. However, she’ll be the first to tell you that her painting must be more than a good likeness or honest representation. Each painting is an exercise melding together a pleasing composition, color harmony and shapes, lines, and patterns. Working in oils and pastels, Deb’s subject matter ranges from landscapes to portraiture. What is most recognizable is her figurative work or what she calls her “peoplescapes.” These are landscapes, cityscapes, and interiors where figures are of key importance. Her paintings represent ordinary themes. They are all either from” her backyard,” trails she walks, or places that she has enjoyed with family and friends. They are universal and meant to convey the enjoyment and appreciation of life…either by observation or participation.

Deb lives with her husband in Aurora, Colorado where she paints fulltime in her home studio. She is a member of the Oil Painters of America, the Pastel Society of America, a signature member of the Pastel Society of Colorado and the Art Students League of Denver. Her works can be found in many private and corporate collections.


I am so happy to have found Trekell brushes. Though I use several different kinds, my absolute favorites are the Red Sable Cat’s Tongue. I love their versatility. With the turn of the brush, you can change from a laying down a wide path of paint to a fine line. It has become my workhorse.
