I have loved art from a very early age. The bright colours and unique designs often had me colouring outside the lines of my colouring books, there was never enough. After trying many styles and materials, my paticular love of 'Abstracts', 'Abstract Collage', and 'Intuitive Free Spirit' using inks, acrylics, hand made papers, as well as gold, silver and copper leaf drew me in. I use all of these materials in my highly textured fine art gold leaf abstracts, and mostly inks and charcoal in my Intuitive pieces. So after taking a few classes here and there, and then changing these up by adding my own 'twist', I guess you could say that I am mostly self taught. My love of animals has helped me to donate many pieces to the Local animal shelters, and rescue sites, this gives me a great deal of satisfaction. I strongly believe we have to speak for these ones that cannot speak for themselves, this is my way of doing that. I believe you will find that my pieces are most suitable for home and office decor.I hope you like what you see enough to make it your own.Thank you for checking out my love.Debra.
