mixed media artist
Debby grew up in Virginia and North Carolina. After high school she joined the Air Force where she met her husband. She spent nine years in the USAF as a jet engine mechanic and intelligence specialist. When her daughter was young she went to Kennesaw State University and graduated Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Finance. Once her daughter started school she went to work for the Department of Veterans Affairs in the foreclosure department.
In 2004 she and her husband retired to Barefoot Bay FL. She had never taken any kind of art class, but enjoyed looking at art. On a whim in May 2013 she took a one day watercolor class with Bob Virelli and was hooked. She studied watercolor with Therese Ferguson and Nancy Sadowski. She is currently enjoying creating art while experimenting with resin mixed with paints, pigments, inks etc…and loves painting watercolor batik.
Debby and her husband enjoy traveling the world. She recently won an award for her watercolor batik “lil man” and is a member of the Florida and Brevard Watercolor Societies as well as the Sebastian River Art Club.
