About Me

Debbie is a professional hyper-realistic oil painter. Hyper-realism art is about the creation of new reality-the illusion so real you want to reach out and touch it.

Hindemith’s creative interest started as an independent makeup artist. Continuing her interest in art, she taught cultural art classes to elementary age students, educating children about the masters that included a finished piece of art. She began by taking private art classes with Kara Lemieux. Hindemith attended Fine Art college courses that gave her the fundamentals of art education from Art History, Life Drawing to Color Theory etc. Hindemith was also mentored and influenced by professional artists Cynthia Britain and Maria Bertran, at their studios and on location in Laguna Beach, both are known for plein air and still life painting. Hindemith continued her studies at Lela Hardy’s Studio in San Diego, a place where students brought in their own work, Lela is an educator and Gallery owner. 

Over time, Debbie’s own style emerged with her sense of color, design and composition, she gravitated towards the more abstract hyper-realistic art style. This modern look she found to be her favorite.

My Process

My medium of choice is oil. I love the way the paint glides on the canvas and the vibrancy of the colors.


My inspiration is from a photograph taken by Ida Kehoe, Equine and landscape photographer.


I start with a with a line drawing and then I build from there. I blend, I layer and enhance.


The result is to capture the character of the photo and enhance the spirit of the subject.
