Deborah is a prophetic/healing artist whose art is remarkable and uncommon. Her truly unique pieces cry out to each new owner.
Deborah was born in Long Beach California. She grew up with a family that was rich in art. Her grandmother was a beautiful pastel artist, and her great uncle Fred Locher was a self-taught famous cartoonist working for the Hearst Newspaper.
Deborah’s parents owned a picture frame business that thrived and served the Laguna Beach artists in her youth. Deborah remembers sweeping saw dust, gluing velvet liner by hand, helping mom with the financial books and delivering frames to the Sawdust festival, and homes of the artists.
As a high school senior Deborah received a prestigious Technical Art Scholarship from Rockwell International, which also came with a job upon graduating. She started her graphic arts career at Rockwell International. She also worked at Mattel Toys for a time and furthered her career as a Graphic Designer.
Unfortunately unforeseen circumstances kept her from using her art scholarship towards her fine arts degree as she had planned. Deborah had to depend on working as a graphic artist in the field to sharpen her art skills. Combining her graphic arts skills and her prophetic art Deborah is the author and illustrator a wonderful children’s book named “I AM An Artful Book of Affirmations” that delights young and old.
During the time Deborah’s two beautiful daughters were young, she put her art skills to work as a quilt artist and teacher. Her quilts made it into the world renowned Houston International Quilt show. Her quilts were published in quilt magazines and her teaching skills were shown on the TV program “Nick News”.
In more recent years Deborah has shifted her focus to “Prophetic Healing Art”. In her Prophetic Art, her primary medium had been water color. Currently she is working on canvas with acrylics. While the process might seem quite simple, it is really quite involved. Deborah teaches her unique approach and techniques in her classes, and her art has extraordinaire results. At times her students have experienced healing in their bodies and emotions as a result of the healing art technique used.
Deborah confesses that the best part of every painting is the personal experience she has with the Living God who is her “personal” art teacher. Deborah believes painting this way develops way more than an ordinary painting. It brings forth emotional, spiritual, and physical healing for her, as well as for those who experience her paintings. Through this process, Deborah’s art has personally developed from lines, squiggles and colors, to beautiful, meaningful art pieces.
People have reported emotional healing by just watching her paint. Recently, a woman came up to Deborah after she had finished painting and reported that as Deborah was painting she felt that God had healed her emotions and she would be able to love again after being divorced for over 17 years.
Another person who obtained a painting from Deborah reported that the painting had unseen personal meaning because it depicted a promise they had received from God. Later reporting that the promise came true. The painting had become a true reminder of hope.
Another person who took Deborah’s Healing Art class reported that week after week that their fibromyalgia was improving and the third week the pain was completely gone!
Deborah’s paintings are alive and are uniquely created. May God bless each one who sees Deborah’s art and may each piece find the person it has been specially painted for.
