Debra’s Artist Statement
Feelings are the linchpin of all art. Every time I create a work — feelings flood me– I have become excited, anxious, sad, angry, or elated during the production stage.
Since my art evokes feelings within me, I expect it to do the same for others!
I often ask those who see my art, “What is your favorite thing about this piece”? I have heard comments ranging from enjoying the mood of the work, liking or disliking a specific object in the work, liking a shadow underneath of an object, or noticing how my signature is within the work.
Whether the viewer responds for the reasons above or because of the vibrancy of color, the directions of the lines, or the drawing’s energy matters not!
My art work has caused us both to feel! I have done my job!
