About Debbie

I am a self-taught artist and poet whose artistic passion began as a child. My imagination flourished as I created playthings and artwork using natural and found objects. Later, my desire to work utilizing my natural ability coincided with opportunity at Booker T. Sparks School of Performing Arts (BTS) where I taught for several years.

As an independent contractor, I have also taught visual arts and workshops for the Fort Worth After School Programs, offering private classes, and I continue to create my own artwork.

My mission is to teach students to see potential art in their environments. Once they have the ability to see what is aesthetically valid, they can create artwork using mixed media, recyclable, found and natural objects. My vision is to see my students satisfied with work that requires more of them than can be produced in a rushed, 45 minute project.

I want to see the students develop patience with themselves through extended projects. The students will learn to apply themselves more deeply to a piece of work if it takes more than a few days to complete. I want them to learn to do even the fundamental elements of each project with excellence and attention to detail. The art standards/enrichment I offer include Gleaning Art from the Environment, Real World Art Discovering, Creating Collages using various mediums , and Applying Found Art Utilizing Photography to develop foundational drawing techniques.

My patient technique and attention to detail, along with over 40 years of creating art, qualify me to teach drawing and painting.

Feel free to contact me to ask specific questions and share your learning goals as an artist!
