Debora was born and lives on the prairies, residing in Regina. Memories of childhood painting, while working in advertising designing phone book ads on the computer, whetted her appetite for some color and real expression. With some instruction from her mother, an accomplished painter and teacher, she started painting as an adult. Growing up on the prairies left a fondness for skies and old buildings. A six year stay in Ontario left a lasting love of trees, but Debora’s subjects and style vary with media. Debora has worked in multiple media: painting in watercolour and acrylics, drawing in wax, pencil and ink. She enjoys designing and illustrating in every opportunity she meets. Her accomplishments include: planting and painting landscapes, fantasy painting, book and cover, card illustration, calligraphy, highway sign design, desktop publishing, floral design, backdrop and stage set design , modeling flora for the Royal Saskatchewan Museum and Ducks Unlimited dioramas, designing and sewing Sci-Fi costumes, and interior decorating. Debora’s work has been shown locally at Prairie Artists Guild and Art Gallery of Regina shows, Gallery 51 in Moose Jaw, Winnipeg and Calgary Sci-Fi Conventions, Allan Blair Clinic, Physical Education Centre Clinic at the University of Regina and the Cumberland Gallery at the Legislative Building. Her Cirecraft wax cards have travelled all over the world.
