Based in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Deb has been making art for as long as she can remember. Both her mother and aunt were quite accomplished artists so she was blessed with wonderful examples. Her mother had a freelance art and photography business that she had hoped to share with her. Unfortunately, while she was working on her Studio Arts and Art History degree at the University of Minnesota, she passed away after a brief illness. Not confident enough to fill her shoes, Deb’s life took a different turn and spent nearly three decades teaching public school; all the while dabbling, however not concentrating on her art. She has recently made the change to refocus on her first passion.
Her style is to generally be a combination of realism and impressionism, though she also enjoys trying out different styles from time to time with varying results. Her favorite mediums are graphite, charcoal, and pastels, but also likes to paint using acrylics, gouache, and occasionally watercolor. One of her favorite collections she works with is titled: “Fearless Women”.
