Debbie grew up on a farm in Australia, with 300 Angora goats and a menagerie of other animals, including at one stage 5 cats and 4 dogs. Dinnertime for her was a little bit like the running of the bulls! She loved being in the country, but moved to Melbourne to study fine art and design. Her favourite adventure was living in London for six years, where she met so many people from different parts of the world and was lucky enough to travel to many beautiful places in the UK and other countries.
Debbie‘s illustrations feature flowers that came from Monet’s Garden, Egyptian Temples, Byron’s House, Madeira’s Flower Festival and Beatrix Potter’s Cottage. She loves creating unique mixed media designs that contain hand drawn and digital illustrations with lots of colour and texture. She is constantly inspired by nature and loves to potter around looking for flowers and foliage to draw. After 20 years experience as a graphic designer specialising in retail and illustrating at home, Debbie gets endless pleasure in creating concepts for greeting cards and surface design. She is so grateful to Advocate Art for all the support and for giving her the opportunity to showcase her work.View Full Bio
