Born in North Yorkshire in 1963, Debbie trained in graphic design at Harrogate and York Colleges of Art. Her career to date has been a successful one with her work used all around the world appearing on greeting cards, stationery, giftware, jigsaws, collectors’ plates and many more products. Debbie’s style is versatile, including detailed watercolour and coloured pencil work, along with acrylics, pen and wash and pastel. Recently Debbie has branched out into painting for exhibitions and private commissions in oils. Debbie draws inspiration from the landscape and wildlife surrounding her 18th century cottage and studio in North Devon. Her favourite subjects are cats, dogs, children, fairies and teddy bears. She enjoys walking her dog, Kani who is her constant companion in the studio.
