Deb was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. She earned a Bachelor of Arts at the University of Alaska (1999-2002) and worked for studio potters in the Anchorage area. During a year long independent study at San Diego State University, she focused mainly on glazing. Deb completed a Masters of Fine Arts at Penn State in May of 2005. Since then she has taught at Ohio University, Massachusetts College of Art and Design and the University of Washington. She has worked nationally at the Archie Bray Foundation (MT), Mudflat Studios (MA), The Clay Studio (PA), Pottery Northwest (WA), Watershed (ME), and internationally at Sanbao in Jingdezhen, China, and the Residency for Ceramics-Berlin in, Germany. Deb also had the pleasure of teaching with the University of Georgia’s study abroad program in Cortona, Italy for a semester. She has taught over 80 workshops and exhibited all around the country, as well as internationally. After ten years of traveling for education, residencies, and teaching appointment Deb moved back to Seattle in 2009. Since buying a house and studio space in 2013, she has been busy doing projects to create a beautiful, functional space to make pots. Between herself, her studio assistants, studio members who rent space, and people participating in classes all work in clay, they keep the wheels turning!
