Deb has been creating art in some form or another since she took her first ceramics course in high school in the 1970’s. She has been a full-time artist since 1996 when she started her own business creating this style of hand-carved clay. She has exhibited and sold her work at art festivals across the country and at select galleries. Her work has been published in magazines, books, and newspapers. Deb received her BFA in Ceramics from the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and her MFA in Ceramics from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She currently resides in Saint Paul, Minnesota.
