    Artist’s Statement:

    Debi Garner is a professional watercolor artist and exhibits extensively throughout Iowa. In addition to creating whimsical and refreshing fun watercolors of her travels, she also continues to use her art for healing post traumatic stress syndrome from her 9/11 experiences in New York.

    Her dramatic 9/11 painting, “It’s Raining People” was given honorable mention this fall by the Iowa Watercolor Society.  That painting will travel across Iowa for 2017-18.  Her painting “Taxi” won this year’s people’s choice award in the Iowa Watercolor Society’s miniature show.

    Debi Garner’s introduction to art was a one semester class in junior high school. She took every project home to complete and with the help of her mother, Marian, they finished all the homework and she received an A+.  At age 60, Debi signed up for her first “real” art class.

    Debi exhibited at Frameworks September of last year.   She returns this year with her Holiday Show, Blue TinselBlue Tinsel is a combination of her favorite things…including her Grandmother’s aluminum Christmas tree with shades of blue and her precious “snow-people.”
