Debbie Willey's passion and commitment to the fine arts is evident in her enthusiastic and tenacious drive for lifelong learning while she studied with Jerry Yarnell. After observing Jerry on Paint This with Jerry Yarnell for over 10 years, it was her devotion to her own students that enabled her to finally take a class at Jerry's studio. God led her to Jerry's studio in the hills of Skiatook, where Mz. Donna and Jerry embraced her with a trust and encouragement she had never experienced. Debbie has earned her Bachelors in Fine Arts, along with her teaching certificate; she has a masters, post graduate work and studied with numerous other artists. But nothing compares to the time with Mz.Donna and Jerry.
Debbie continues to teach Art privately, in workshops, conferences and in public/private school systems. Teaching and creativity are her gifts from God, to which she gives Him all the glory. After teaching art to children and adults for over 30 years, Debbie changed her teaching style and technique after experiencing first hand Jerry's tried and true Master Artist techniques, to create a learning culture that is conducive to any level of artistic learning. Debbie has served as the Chair of the Art Department for a private school, taught college art classes, private classes, sold numerous paintings and illustrated several books; she is available for teaching or contract work. In the future it is Debbie's dream to obtain another advanced certification from Jerry Yarnell.
