Bio: I'm a fulltime artist who paints primarily on Yupo paper. I use acrylic inks, acrylic paint and gouache. I've been painting on and off since I was eight years old. In 2007 I began taking my art seriously after a dream and a set of circumstances. I paint intuitively and don't know ahead of time what I'm going to paint. I choose some colors and listen to Christian worship music as I paint. The paper I use, Yupo paper does not absorb the paint into the paper. The paint evaporates. That's how it dries. When it is wet, the paint will move on the paper and gives you lots of interesting textures. I eventually see an image in the paint and then further define it. I depend on the leading of the Holy Spirit to guide me. If an image does not work, I simply wipe it off and start over.

  1. Hello Deborah, I am a fellow artist, a member of Good Shepherd Catholic Church, Colleyville, TX, and a member of “Christ Renews His Parish (CRHP)” Retreat Group who will be hosting a similar retreat to another 40 women in August, 2014. Our theme is “Lord, I Need You”

    We would be honored if you would permit us to use your art “Deep Calls Unto Deep” from Psalm 42:7 as our CRHP 10 Notebook Cover Page and other misc items such as nametags. We would give you written credit in the notebook and direct participants to your website. There will be no money collected from any of the items which would display your art. I can be reached at 817-307-1966.

      • Thank you Deborah, I look forward to your call. We are Central Time which is 1 hr later rather than 3. Call at your convenience any time today.
