Deborah was born in Providence, RI and moved to Connecticut at a young age. She has spent much of her life in Southeastern MA and has a deep affinity for the sea and all it's mystery. The Connecticut hillsides hold their own treasures that are a source of inspiration.
She attended Salve Regina University in Newport, RI and began a teaching career that she continued up to her retirement a few years ago. With her family raised and teaching years behind, she has been able to indulge her love of painting with fellow artists that she has met through the Ten-2-One Artists group in Thomaston, Connecticut.
Her artwork it's primarily based on nature, whether animal, plant, or mineral. These elements may begin one way, but evolve during the creative process.
Debra sincerely hopes that her artwork brings a measure of joy or other emotions.
