Bio

Lucky to have experienced international travel and living throughout her youth and young adulthood, stimulated and influenced Deborah’s passion for the visual of everyday life and art. Completing high school at an alternative school in England began her involvement with various art media, partially (but pleasantly) interrupted by the birth and raising of two children. After preliminary art studies at the Bellas Artes, Guanajuato Mexico, she obtained her degree in Studio Arts with a focus on Painting and Printmaking from the University of California. Deborah now resides in Portland Oregon, surrounded by the beautiful varied landscape of the Pacific Northwest of the US, painting full time and traveling whenever possible.
