Debbie initially went through a rigorous academic training as a medical and scientific illustrator in London before moving sideways into a successful career as an art director in publishing, where she wrote and designed many award-winning children’s books. However, after moving to Australia twenty years ago, she was drawn back to the paintbrush and she has painted full time for over twelve years.

Debbie is the founder and director of me Artspace in St Leonards, Sydney. Debbie taught at Billy Blue Design College in North Sydney for fifteen years, but now runs painting workshops at me Artspace every week.
