Debby: artist, designer, cat mom, and pretty nice person.


A Northerner turned Texan for many years now, Debby received her formal art training at the University of North Texas.  

She returned to school later in life and her collegiate pursuits focused on fine ceramic arts.  She later taught herself how to paint in watercolors, acrylics, pastels and oil.  Her variety and color can most likely be attributed to a long career as a travel professional.  She has been very fortunate to visit and be inspired by wonderful places and cultures all over the world.  Debby has received various awards and her colorful art hangs in the homes of family, friends and acquaintances.  

Hi everybody!  I grew up in the north, but have called north Texas home for much of my adult life.  I'm inspired by pretty much everything I encounter from sights and sounds to color.  My two cats, Katie and Sophie are among my many muses.  Their sassy feline-ness tends to find its way into my art.  For as long as I can remember, I was creating.  I recall a quote by Picasso about how if anybody took his paints, he'd use pastels and if the pastels were taken, he'd use pencils.  No matter what, he would always find a way to keep creating. That's how I feel too.  It's not simply about making pretty pictures.  It's about a feeling or a vision that compels me to record and share it somehow.  Lately, I'm sharing years of bottled up creativity through fabric design. I love the learning process with each medium and making designs repeat has an added challenge.  So too, it allows my designs functionality as fabric, home decor objects and wall paper.    


Travel has been a dominant part of my life and influences my desire to

explore color and pattern.  I cannot urge people enough to go boat, train, or plane...even for just a day.  
My first inkling that the world  was much bigger than the small one

I lived in was when I was a child.  My grandparents traveled

and how they enriched their lives by broadening their horizons

inspired me to do the same!  My travels have included amazing places

like Egypt, Turkey, China, the Caribbean, South

America, Panama, Mexico, nearly all Western European countries, and

most US states including HI and AL.  Opening my heart and mind

to different cultures and styles was an invaluable teacher creatively

and otherwise.   

Thank you for visiting!
