An art teacher for nine years, Deb Strain left teaching in 1994 to devote herself to her family and the development of her own art.  Her husband, three children and twin grandsons are her pride and joy.  Their beloved Saltbox home is filled with laughter, creativity and love.  It is in the peaceful woods surrounding their home where Deb finds her inspiration.  Drawing on memories of growing up in Ohio and times spent with family and friends, she seeks to convey a kinder, gentler way of life. 

"Art is my passion, but my "real-life" love is my family,” explains Deb.  "My two daughters are both artists and my husband and son are our biggest supporters. We are very fortunate to share such a wonderfully bonding interest." Deb feels continually blessed by her family's closeness and being able to follow her dream to create art and share it with others. Her art can be found world-wide on a number of products from fabric to greeting cards to figurines.
