Student Testimonials

  • Painting with Debra brings back the foundations in art with a deceptively simple, fun loving freedom. Her approach touches the artist in the deepest way. I am so pleased with how her words stay with me as I continue to paint and discover my work. - Eli Lund
  • Debra’s workshop series is a great combination of rigorous painting exercises and laid-back comradery. Along with sharing the useful tools Debra has learned in her career, she is helpful in organizing the clutter of “art stuff” already in one’s head but not able to put on the canvas before. My value sketches are becoming more effective. I'm seeing color better and improvement of my palette knife work as well as my brush technique, something that makes me very happy. Her workshops have put me on a path towards an artistic future I didn’t have before. - David Martin
  • Debra, I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful class. You are a terrific and enthusiastic teacher and you make fairly complex ideas easy to understand. Thank you. I'll be back for more! - Barbara Davidson
