Deb studied Graphics and Communications at Kwantlen College and Fine Arts at the University of Concordia (Montreal). She can't truly remember when she started art as it happened as soon as she learned how to hold a pencil/brush.

She began her art career at a textile company in Burnaby, where she made logos and drew caricatures to be silkscreened on t-shirts, caps and jackets and sometimes sports bags. Three years later, Deb accepted a job as a Creative Ad Designer at one of the large newspaper chains in Vancouver. She moved to beautiful Union Bay in 1992, where she continued her career as a Creative Ad Designer at the Comox Valley Record as well as continuing her love of art on canvas. Presently, Deb is a professional artist, exhibts her work in shows, studio tours and privately by appointment.

Deb paints mostly in oils and acrylics and is diverse in both subject and media. She loves to create unique paintings with her artistic inspirations mostly from our beautiful Island, road trips, vacations and our furry friends, along with a little whimsical and a dash of embellishments. 

Deb's goals in life is to be happy and have inner peace as much as possible everyday, and she strives to express her positive feeling through her art. 

Science has proven that looking at a work of art actually improves your mood.
