RAL Welcomes Two New Artists

Updated: Jan 14


When Debra Bull retired to Kilmarnock three years ago, she fell in love with the beauty of the surrounding waters. Attending Paint Nights and Open Studio Workshops at the RAL fueled her life-long interest in painting. She strives to document the many places she discovers while kayaking to undisturbed beaches around the Northern Neck. Currently working mainly in acrylics, her subjects are of creeks, rivers or bay, and the woodlands, beaches, and wildlife that surround them.



Bob Casazza’s paintings reflect the skills and techniques that he acquired during a career as a Graphic Artist, Animator and Set Designer in TV. His background in animation is particularly apparent in his bold and colorful work, much of it done in the traditional 2-D cel-painting technique that involves painting on plexiglass mounted over a painted background. The subjects of his paintings vary from realism to fantasy, but all showcase his unique style.
