Art is Debra’s language, and it speaks of how she is innately wired. As an inspirational artist, beginning with a career as architect, she is now a full-time muralist, artist, art instructor, illustrator and designer. Her introduction to fiber comes as an exciting extension 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. Debra is a native Texan, now Goodyear-based artist who lives with her husband and little dog Astro.
