Deb Anderson paints still life and landscapes in oil, both in her Glenview studio and outdoors, on location. The practice of painting helps her perceive the world more clearly, and encourages a deeper appreciation for our surroundings.

Deb grew up in rural Michigan and later earned a B.A. in Art from North Park University in Chicago. She is also a freelance graphic designer, and has taught classes in digital illustration and digital imaging at the college level.
