Debbie's Original Art

A note from Debbie:  While studying art in college, I received instruction in all mediums and most styles.  Although I enjoyed using oils and watercolors, I found my greatest satisfaction came when using charcoal and pencil to create realistic art. When I retired from printmaking in 2012, I began painting abstract art. Moving from realistic art to abstract art was a difficult transition for me, but I embraced the challenge of letting go, using color, and not staying in the lines. My style is still changing and developing, and I never know what I will end up with next.   


On Etsy, Creative Heartworks features Debbie's Word Art that has been embellished with glitter, pearls and rhinestones. It also features glass paperweights and coasters using Debbie's art.  Please visit our Etsy Shop at
