Principal & Creative Director
Deborah Moss is a Canadian artist whose artwork draws on inspiration from a broad range of epochs and cultures. She explores the qualities of surface and the purity and substance of material. Her fascination with the intimate nature of treasured possessions, as well as an interest in mythical and personal narratives, allow her to create contemporary visions that hover between many conventions, but always fascinate and enhance our experience with visual poetry.
Deborah is the co-founder of Moss and Lam, a custom art studio based in Toronto, Canada which she started with her partner Edward Lam in 1987. Deborah leads the artistic vision for each project and oversees all of the designers and artists in the studio to ensure that all artworks being produced meet the highest standards of quality, craftsmanship and creativity.
Since its inception, Moss and Lam have been commissioned by some of the world’s leading interior designers and architects to create custom artwork, wall surfaces and three-dimensional installations that are visually and structurally integrated with their environments. The diversity of these installations reveals Moss and Lam’s versatility, its passion for materials and its desire to create artworks that are imaginative, whimsical and authentic. Moss and Lam has created large scale commissions for many international luxury brands in the hospitality and retail industries, as well as public art commissions throughout Canada including: Four Seasons Hotels in Toronto, Orlando, Tokyo, Bangalore, Shanghai, Delhi; W Hotel Times Square, Guangzhou; Editions Waikiki; Opus Condo Hong Kong; Tiffany & Co. New York, Macau, Jakarta; Lane Crawford Department stores in Shanghai and Hong Kong as well as Blue Fin Restaurant, Café Coco Kuwait, and Clement Restaurant in Peninsula Hotel NYC.
