Deborah is well known for her great love of nature. She gives people a glimpse of how animals live in the wild in a secret world, raise their young, court and survive. Her quest for nature has taken her from the Everglades National Park to Denali National Park in Alaska.

Deborah grew up on a farm in Connecticut, surrounded by nature and began drawing as a child, copying her mother’s paintings of Bambi, Flower and Thumper on her bedroom wall. Since they were painted on the hall wall, her parents quickly provided her with coloring books, paints and crayons to encourage her creativity. She began drawing birds in grade school, winning awards at the school and painted and drew every summer and during the school year, often forgoing homework! She earned her college degree with a dual major in Illustration and Commercial Art. She graduated with honors and moved to South Florida where she has worked for many years as a graphic artist for The Sun Sentinel. She is currently a Special Sections Designer for the paper and in her “spare time” teaches at Old School Square in Delray Beach, does local workshops and demos.

Mediums used by Deborah include pastel, oils and acrylics and may involve an under painting for added luminosity and atmosphere. Each medium requires different procedures. With pastels it involves washes of color and turpentine. In oils she blocks out colors. With acrylics she builds on layers going from light to dark.

She has received many national and local awards. She has illustrated two children’s books: “Woodcut Jill” raising money for the National Crocodile Refuge and “Rosie’s Song”. A fully illustrated book.

Membership affiliations include: Signature member of the Artists for Conservation, the Pastel Society of America, the Salmagundi Art Club, an elected member of the Audubon Artists, the Wellington Art Society and many others. Deborah says, “Looking at my paintings today, many people think they are photographs. I take it as a compliment since I’m a photorealistic painter. My quest has been exciting and rewarding”.
