Debora Cardaci 


From a very young age Debora Cardaci was inextricably drawn into the miraculous world of art.   Here she found release for her burning creative energy. 

Throughout her life, Debora has always been inspired by the masters, spending time with their works at every opportunity while traveling throughout Europe and the U.S.   

Her passion for the exploration of contrasting environments and cultures has broadened the scope of her work, adding a compelling depth and worldliness to her art. She could be from this or perhaps another era…..

Particularly attracted to expressive art and the sense of motion and emotion in a piece, her work is influenced by Rodin, Kathe Kollwitz, Ilya Repin, 

Valentine Serov, Joaquin Sorolla, The Impressionists, the Expressionists and Abstract Expressionists.

She received her Masters of Fine Arts degree in 1992 from University of Fine Arts P. Pueyrredon, Buenos Aires.  She then went on to teach art for 

over two decades - both in the community and at the University of Arts in Buenos Aires.

Cardaci’s art continues to evolve.   An accomplished painter, sculptor, illustrator and designer, she is always finding challenge and joy in experimentation with different media. Her works have been featured in galleries, (both solo and group shows), and in private collections in Canada, the U.S., Argentina, Uruguay, Italy, Spain, and the Czech Republic. 

Born in Buenos Aires, with childhood years spent in the USA before returning to complete her education in Argentina, Debora Cardaci now lives and works in Canada.
