Her name is Debra Kathlene Weiser
She is my grandmother. She is married to my grandpa who is my dad’s dad.
She came from Ireland. There are 2 Irelands. One is The Republic of Ireland and the other is Northern Ireland. She is from Northern Ireland.
She came to America about 40 years ago with her mom, dad and brothers and sisters.
She started life in the United States as a high school student. She graduated within only 3 years and then went to college with a degree in Commercial Art.
She likes to paint, and I think she is really, really good. Some of her paintings look real and some look weird but they are still pretty. Sometimes she paints with acrylic paints and sometimes she paints with oil paints. She even mixes them too.
My grandson had to write about his Nanny Deb for school and I thought this was a fitting introduction. Thank you, Nolan.
I enjoy all mediums and incorporating textures. I am always trying something new and different but, of course, always return to the comfort of acrylics. I do a lot a commission work and you’ll find my prices affordable as I get great joy in making people happy with my concepts of their wishes. Check out some of them here.
What can I create for you?
