Obfuscations and Revelations

Debbie loves to use  paper with acrylics in a mosaic-like style  inspired by her love of Gaudi and Fuster's mosaics. Debbie paints and textures the papers she uses in her  media collage-style works. She also uses paper, sticks, plaster, clay, found objects and fabrics to create three dimensional figures.
