Debra Cortese | sharing the beauty, power and magic of nature ,

WELCOME graphi - Debra Cortese Designs

I’ve always had a deep connection with nature and am continually inspired by her beauty, which is found even in the tiniest creature, or in the way the light and shadows will dramatically change what you can see in a matter of seconds! I’m fortunate to now have a studio that overlooks the Big Eddy of the Delaware River in the Catskill Mountains of New York. Wildlife abounds and the view morphs on a constant basis with the changing of seasons; the wind; cloud movements and… my state of appreciation.


I hope you enjoy my photos, art and designs as much as I enjoy creating them!

A little tip for seeing the magic in nature…

How is it that a glimpse of a simple flower can instill a feeling of pure joy?

Try blinking at what appears to be a rather normal flower and pay close attention to the light and movement on and around this flower. Take a deep breath and look again. You may catch a glimpse of a playful fairy or even a mischievous garden gnome!
