Deborah is known internationally as a jade artist. Her starting point was in the early 70s after graduating from the Vancouver School of Art. Jade carving was a way to transition into the real world but jade did indeed become her chosen medium. Relocating to the Okanagan in the 80s allowed her to focus on this very challenging hard stone.
After successfully completing "KALAMALKA REFLECTIONS" in jade for the City of Vernon (made possible by OTISS 2002) she has taken on several commissioned monumental sculptures. The most recent one is "LUNA ", carved in Mabel Lake marble, installed at the Watermark entrance way at The Rise in Vernon in 2008.
