Back To Artist Listing

Although always artistically inclined, it wasn’t until 2000 that Debra followed her dream of taking art classes. In 2010 she found her first studio space in Dobbs Ferry where she participated in open studio tours which led to the thrill of solo shows.

Her subjects in oil are still lifes, landscapes, portraits of people and most recently portraits of pets. Her other medium is graphite in which she draws portraits of people and pets. 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 graphite, and as she does with oil, likes the medium to show itself.

All of the artists Debra studied with were classically trained. She follows in that tradition.

She is preparing for a solo show in 2023.
