Deb Kirkeeide has had a love of art since childhood which led her to pursue a career in the world of commercial art with experience in the giftware, display, print and video industries.
Deb is mostly self taught, but in 2005 a class in Impressionist oil painting led her to a plein air workshop with Minnesota artist Reid Galey.
The trip turned out to be her artistic and personal epiphany and after a week of total immersion into art she came away with an awakened sense of passion for painting and nature and she has been committed to her painting ever since.
Deb currently lives in Minneapolis, Minnesota and aims to paint every day. You can see her latest paintings over on her blog, some of which are available to buy.
