Her artwork is magnificent, but what made the experience of working with Deb unique and extraordinary was both her complete dedication to process and her commitment to partnership. Deb worked tirelessly to make every aspect of her piece the best it could be, from consulting engineers and chemists to endless experimentation. This extraordinary dedication is reflected in the awe-inspiring final piece. Collaborating with Deb was unlike any other commission — she included me in every aspect of the design and creative process, which gave me a unique sense of ownership and perspective on Deb’s final masterpiece. It was a true joy to work with Deb and I am thrilled and inspired daily by her work.
I saw Debra’s artwork in the Ten Women Gallery in Santa Monica, CA. I immediately fell in love and wanted a piece for my home. I love the colors used in the different metal mosaic pieces. I contacted Debra about customizing a piece to fit the colors and size for a room in my house. Working with Debra was an easy, amazing process. She listened to what I wanted and was dedicated to making a perfect custom piece that looks beautiful. We even FaceTimed so Debra could see the room where the piece was going and I found out more about the process. I also relied on Debra’s magical artistry to create a mosaic that looks perfect in its spot. I was so excited to receive my piece which was packed unbelievably well. I am so happy with how it turned out! I love it!!
I have never thought of myself as an art collector, but when I saw Debra’s metal mosaics I was so transfixed, I realized that I wanted to have my very own piece to hang on my wall for inspiration and a sense of calm every day. Though the mosaic is created with a strong, flat, hard substance, its ability to express light, tranquility, beauty and airiness is amazing. Debra is a true artist who can bring together different mediums to create harmonious pieces that feel completely natural and pure.
The minute I saw the shimmering colors at the art festival, I knew I needed a mosaic. Meeting Debra and learning her process, then I knew I needed to have her make me one. She visited my house, took notes on what I liked, sifted through tiles from a vast colored collection, and I made one of the great decisions of my life: I ordered my own. Debra was with me every step of the way, inviting me to her studio to review my mosaic and to shift colors and tiles, and e-mailing with pictures and other choices. When I arrived to pick up my mosaic, it was far more grand than I had ever expected. I meant to hang it in my yard, but I replaced a picture in my living room with Debra’s creation. I appreciate it often, daily.
I received a piece of Debra’s art for my birthday. It is absolutely a one-of-a-kind piece of art. She puts so much time and effort into creating a piece that is personal to you. I could not be more pleased and happy with it. I proudly have it hanging in my living room and get compliments from all who visit.
