With 35 years experience as an artist, Debra Hood now specializes in intricate, colourful and detailed cityscapes of Brisbane that capture the romantic essence of its inner city suburbs. She enjoys documenting the variety of Queenslander homes and they always charm and inspire with their architectural detail and heritage.
Her work aims to bring joy to the viewer, and a sense of childhood nostalgia as they search to find tiny hidden secrets amongst the foliage or daydream about life inside the houses.
Debra is excited by the challenge of discordant colours and assorted patterns. She loves to create a visually exciting and offbeat image. Pink or yellow tree trunks play with multicolored leaves along with pink, purple and blue confetti skies and a reflection of summer sunsets over the Brisbane skyline and green hills.
The magic of this collaboration came about as Debra has been a little obsessed with the design and fragrances of Bookshelf Candles along with Jen knowing and also obsessing over the beauty of Debra's work from living in Brisbane previously. With a little push from Jen's friend Brittany and some words of wisdom "the worst thing she can say is no" she just went for it. Debra and Jen created this colourful, fruity sensation that captures the essence of Queensland in a candle collaboration.
This Bookshelf Candles X Debra Hood Art Collaboration is very special to both Debra Hood and Bookshelf Candles as it has been inspired by the reminiscent memories of times gone by, the beauty and colour of nature and of course, Queensland.
We have created three gorgeous fragrances which reflect the beautiful flavours and perfumes of the hot tropical summers in Brisbane:
- Mango & Passionfruit
- Wild Strawberry
Citrus & Sage
