Deb is a local area artist who calls the world her home. Trained in the art of photography at Fanshawe College she found true love when she took up the art of painting. A happy accident put Deb on the path of mixed media and now she mixes her art and photography to make a life as an artist for herself.
In Deb’s words about her art she says: “Creating art, it is like finding pieces of my soul and pulling myself back together.” It takes courage to be an artist and to share your creations with the world. Then to stand back and await the verdict. Will my art be liked? Will it find a new home? What will people think? I care.
I make art primarily to ﬁll a need within myself. The need fills several voids. I have a need to be remembered after I am long gone from this earthly word. I want to leave something that says I mattered. Art does that for me. I am an advocate of life... of helping people. My resume reads like a book. I’m an entrepreneur, I’ve worked in banking, real estate and had my own business for several years. I practice mediation and meditation, I’m also an awesome cook ... doing anything that allows me to be creative.
