Debra is a self-taught artist who recently moved back to her home state of Wisconsin, having spent five years on the Gulf Coast of Florida. Florida had much to offer, but she missed the seasons and the beautiful rolling hills of the Kettle Moraine area. She says about her art:
"I have felt a driving force to create my entire life. In recent years I have returned to painting, at first oil and acrylic, and now mixed media with paper, paint and ink. I am most drawn to creating through feeling and expression and hope this shows up in what I do."
