Instructor Debbie Arnold's Bio
A formal training in graphic arts and a love for oriental art have heavily influenced Debbie Arnold's work. After over 10 years as a watercolorist, she has switched to painting in acrylics. By combining the fluidity and lightness learned through years as a watercolorist with the ability of acrylics to be layered and manipulated, she has created a unique painting style. Her process included layering thin washes of acrylic with as many as 15 to 20 layers of transparent paint in each piece. The light shimmering through the many layers of color and texture make these complex paintings glimmer and glow.
Her accomplishments include several one and two person shows and entry in numerous juried and invitational exhibits. debbie Arnold's work is included nationally in several public, private and corporate collections.She has been teaching workshops for two years through Carlton Gallery, Wildwoods Gallery and private retreat settings. She is currently exhibiting in Carlton Gallery in Boone, NC. Today, she is living and working in Boone, NC where she has lived for 30 years.
