Deb draws her inspiration from memories of growing up in Ohio and times spent with family and friends. The beauty of simple, everyday life is often the subject matter in much of her art. She is continually collecting ideas and images for her next illustration, whether they be from nature, antique shops or her own life experience.
An art teacher for 9 years, Deb left teaching in 1994 to devote herself to her family and the development of her own art. Her husband, three children and twin grandsons are her pride and joy. Their beloved Saltbox home is filled with laughter, creativity and love. “Art is my passion, but my ‘real-life’ love is my family,” she explains. Deb feels continually blessed by her family’s closeness and being able to follow her dream to create art and share it with others.
