Deborah is a painter with a Post Modern approach to her abstraction. Her current work with oil and cold wax embraces the temporal. It references architectural and mechanical structures in her gritty, urban environment and it relies on the viewer to construct meaning.

Following a Bachelor of Education (English/Fine Arts) from Simon Fraser University and her 12 year career as a Humanities educator, Deborah earned a Certificate of Fine Art from Emily Carr University in 2007 and travelled extensively for 3 years. She had her first exhibitions while living for 2 years in Istanbul where she also began her career as a full time painter. 

Deborah currently exhibits her work locally, nationally and on line and she contributes annually to charitable causes related to youth, health, public art and the environment.
