About the Teaching Artist:
Art is Debra’s language, and it speaks of how she is innately wired. As an award winning international and inspirational artist, beginning with a career as an architect, she is now a full-time muralist, artist, art instructor, illustrator, and designer. Her latest love is working with fiber as an exciting extension of her portfolio, adding depth to her work after her mom left her with a plethora of fabric and a machine to draw with her needle. With a brush and a pencil in hand, Debra begins her designs by sketching to scale and allowing the form to follow function. Her life’s work is a continued exploration, which has its roots in a life lived overseas and the experience of a multicultural community. As a multimedia artist, Debra’s work and teaching style clearly represent a global influence. With each new project her journey begins with research and analysis of a subject which takes her design from concept to expression.
