Debbie is a lifelong fine artist residing in Westport, CT. Her work has been widely exhibited, earning numerous awards and is collected nationally.
After decades of exploring street and abstract photography, Debbie was ready for a drastic change. She was introduced to the world of ceramics about 10 years ago and hasn't looked back. It's been an exciting journey into the world of 3-d and she has relished every minute of it. Over time her ceramic work has returned to the essence of her photography; light, form, shadow, repetition, tempo, texture. Her work is informed by the organic nature of Japanese ceramics - beginning with a loose concept and then allowing for the element of chance. The results are unique and animated, and more and more humanoid without being strictly figurative. Working in groupings allows her to explore relationships and interactions.
Debbie received a BA from Conn. College with a major in Fine Art and a minor in Art History. She continued to a career in Advertising and Graphic Design in NYC and then while raising her children started a window display business in CT. After rediscovering her love of photography, she began intensive study at The International Center of Photography (ICP) in NYC. Since 2009 she's been immersed in ceramics at The Silvermine Art Center. In addition to being a Silvermine Guild member Debbie is an exhibiting member at numerous local art centers.
