Debbie graduated from the Maryland Institute, College of Art, in 1970, with a diploma in Graphic Design. She studied painting as a freshman, but never pursued it.
After a forty-year hiatus she enrolled at Anne Arundel Community College where she studied painting for seven years. Her preferred medium is oil.
Currently, she prefers painting photo-realist still lifes and parking signs. In these she invites you to take an intimate look at everyday objects.
She is a member of the Maryland Federation of Art in Annapolis, MD.
