Deborah Ann Kirkeeide

Currently acrylic painting, mixed media and drawing are my avenues for creating, they provide an endless journey of possibilities. To challenge, explore and lose myself to the process of creating is joy, to capture an ordinary story and show its beauty is success.

Born in Phoenix, Arizona, I earned a Bachelor Of Fine Arts Degree from Northern Arizona University in 1975, then married and moved to Minnesota in1984. Working as a free lance illustrator for thirteen years sharpened my drawing skills and grew confidence. I retired in 2011 returning to my love for painting. My art work has been selected three times for the Minnesota State Fair Fine Art Exhibition winning awards in 2015 and 2017.
