DeBorah Beatty is a 5 year old abstract expressionist in a grownup’s body. She is passionate about color, movement, freedom and extending her reach as an artist. As a self-taught experimental mixed media artist with a uncompromising passion for play, DeBorah hasbeen arting most of her life but doesn’t  feel she got serious until 20 years ago.

DeBorah blames her Irish roots for her passion for storytelling and  her works tell tales on a visceral empathic level. DeBorah loves that her art can express what words cannot and she teaches her process to others who have issues voicing who they are.

Just as her paintings have multiple levels of expression, DeBorah is also a wife, a mother, a published author, an educator, and an advocate for not only working outside the box, but throwing the damned thing away!

The Story Of An Artist

Once upon a time there was a little girl who wanted to be an artist like her Daddy. She tried and tried but could never make anything work out right.  So she gave up on her artist dream and filled her mind and her life with other ones: being a successful entrepreneur, wife and mother.

​One day, when she was all grown, her dream of being an artist found her again. There was much celebration as these two halves became whole again and the little girl welcomed the woman and vice versa.

Far from The End.

​DeBorah shares herself with others through her pieces and her “PlayShops” and helps others who have given up on their creative dreams to reconnect, reaffirm and rediscover that part of themselves.
