ABOUT DEBBIE W. DENSTORFF:
Art gives me energy and a refreshing outlook on life. As a young girl, you could often find me with a sketch pad in hand. I drew some of my inspiration from the illustrations in the books I read, and also my admiration for Walt Disney. In the early 80’s, I began to paint, mostly with watercolor and also with pen and ink. When my daughter was born, I built upon my experience and began painting pictures with the lens of my camera. When I look at the photographs I have taken over the years, I can hear the stories they tell. This is the goal for my paintings as well.
The left side of my brain has been overworked through my days sitting behind a computer screen dealing with technical issues. But, I took every opportunity I could to pull out some of my creative juices with graphic design, and also with photography. I began to use my photographs as greeting cards. What started as an easy solution to a last minute note blossomed into an exciting hobby.
Debbie is a member of Associated Women in the Arts, Louisiana Art and Artists’ Guild, Oil Painters of America and Women Painters of the Southeast.
DEBBIE W. DENSTORFF’S WORK:
With my retirement I have had the blessing to return to my first love of the paintbrush. Over the past several years I have taken numerous workshops and have not only improved my technique, but I have made amazing friendships through art. My favorite medium at the moment is oil and I’m now on a mission to capture the effect of light on objects.
