Study Series include: Landscape I and II, Yarnell Instructor
As a child and young adult Debbie was a musician, studying flute and piano. After becoming an “empty nester” she found a creative outlet in painting and became more passionate about art. While raising her children she had the opportunity to live in Holland and it was there that Debbie took her first painting class in 1992 and spent most of my time painting landscapes. After returning to the United States, she continued to study with Jerry and in 2013 became a “Yarnell Certified Artist” and in 2016 she became a “Yarnell Certified Instructor”. Studying with Jerry through the “Certified Artist Program” gave her the extra boost that she needed to advance her painting abilities and her confidence to take her art to the next level. As a Certified Instructor she is currently teaching Yarnell National Workshops near Pittsburgh and throughout country.
More recently Debbie became interested in Plein Air painting and has attended the Publisher’s Invitational for Plein air painters. During the summer months she works outdoors as often as possible and enjoys the extra challenges that painting outside poses. Debbie is doing critiques of student paintings and also online lessons using the Zoom firstname.lastname@example.org
