Although always artistically inclined, it wasn’t until 2000 that Debra followed her dream of taking art classes.  In September of 2010 she found a studio space in Dobbs Ferry where she participated in their open studio tours and experienced selling her work for the first time.  In January of 2015 Debra moved her studio to its present location in Peekskill; she is thrilled to be part of its vibrant arts community.
Her subjects are still lifes, landscapes, and portraits of people and animals in oil, and graphite drawings of people and animals.  She loves painting in oil for its rich color and texture.  Her brush work is often visible in her paintings.  She enjoys the versatility and portability of pencil, and as she does with oil, like the medium to show itself.
All of the artists Debra studied with were classically trained.  She follows that tradition.
