Deb Schmidt is an abstract artist based in West Palm Beach. Her paintings and drawings vary in style and subject matter but are always inspired by personal experience. Her art can be characterized by geometric shapes and sometimes elements found in nature. Deb’s artistry started as a teen when she discovered her love of drawing. She is self-taught and has used painting and drawing as a creative outlet for much of her life. This is her first show in Palm Beach County.

Deb tells The Rickie Report, “My work is non-representational and hopes to invoke a mood or emotion. I am inspired primarily by shape and texture rather than subject. My paintings are primarily acrylic on canvas and my drawings are ink on white stock”.  Deb also creates unique walking sticks and has been experimenting with watercolors. Her work is in private residences throughout the U.S., and her current work can be seen at her on-line gallery at debsgallery.com

Follow the story of how the warmth and fragrance of coffee, a drink most of us take for granted, brings a family together through many generations.  At the heart of this book is Naliyah, a youngster battling a childhood syndrome.  While coffee exudes energy and zest, Naliyah’s  personality brings those same qualities to everyone who meets her.

Jean’s book is a family affair, reaching beyond this inspiring child.  Jean tells The Rickie Report, “All the art work in the book is by me except for a few crafts and designed apparel by Liyah.  There is a painting by her father. My other granddaughter Destiny, who is 14 years old, has an acrylic painting and an illustration in the book.  My eldest did the layout and text formatting”.
