Not satisfied with the “straight” photograph Deb’s began to hand-color, draw and paint on a variety of different photographic media, on anything from linen to rag paper. Deb’s work, with the introduction of digital software, progressed to complex digital prints, roughly 30 x 40 inches in size that include photography, typography, drawings, painting and found objects. Deb has received numerous grants and awards and her artwork is exhibited nationally in both galleries and museums. Her work has been featured in Digit magazine, in London, and recently in The Oregonian. Her “highly caffeinated” works are also included in the permanent collection of the Adirondack Trust Corporate Gallery, the Portland Art Museum, Portland, Oregon and in many private collections throughout the United States.
