As a young child, Debbie wanted to become an artist. Throughout the years, she created art for enjoyment and used it as a therapeutic tool. In 1995, she decided to start selling her paintings. At that time, she placed second out of 1,300 artists in an international art contest at The Hunter Museum of American Art in Tennessee. Two years later, Debbie became one of the top 100 artists in the world in an international exhibition in La Jolla, Ca. Her goal as an artist is to bring peace and beauty to the world.
