Debra Grubbs
Award Winning Artist  
Biography:    Each one of us has his or her own way of capturing
                            the visual world.
Debra Grubbs began painting in watercolors while studying with           
Watercolorist Corey Staid in Andover, Massachusetts as a teenager.  
She studied with a variety of other artists after moving to California in
the late 70's.  While attending Las Positas College in Livermore,
California, she painted primarily in acrylics and watercolor, receiving a
more structured, formal training, eventually receiving a Degree in Fine
Arts, emphasis in painting.  
Debra was Director of Visual Arts for a program called "FAME" for the
Livermore Public School system before moving back to New England.  
Over the years, she has received numerous prizes and awards at
dozens of art shows, and many of her paintings have been sold and
are displayed at homes and businesses across the country.
The WILDLIFE ART MAGAZINE featured Debra's work in it's section
"Women Making Magic with Unusual Media" highlighting her collages
of Confetti Birch Forests, May/June 2005. Recently, Debra's art was
spotlighted on
TV's "NEW HAMPSHIRE CHRONICLE" featuring the
Cultural Trolley Night in Manchester, NH.

Medium: Landscape oil painting using the subject of Sky-Scapes
and Birch Trees is how Debra celebrates our visual paradise where   
we live here in New England. She likes to portray these subjects in an
expressionistic color manner.
Debra also has worked in many mediums including multi-media collage
and monotypes.
