Raised in New Hampshire, Deb Achak holds a master’s degree in social work and is a self-trained photographer and filmmaker. She lives in Seattle, WA with her husband and sons in a grand old home that was once a bed and breakfast.
Deb makes memoir films of her life and family, and recently began a series of artist process films looking at the studio practices and inspiration of contemporary artists she admires. Her films have been exhibited at the Seattle International Film Festival and Winston Wachter Fine Art Gallery, Seattle, WA.
Deb’s fine art photography explores natural elements of water and grasses ---- earth elements with clean simple compositions mean to calm and soothe. Her children are also a growing subject of her fine art work. Select photographs have been exhibited at the Black Box Gallery, Portland, OR; Sante Fe Photographic Workshops, Sante Fe, NM; and the SE Center for Photography, Greenville, SC.
