How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I met Joanne Miller At the Sanctuary with Wayne and Brad from the God Journey. I would like to connect with other people who have been where I want to go and gain some of the wisdom they aquired getting there. I also want to interact with diverse people who will challenge and expand my world.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am currently employed as a customer service/floral designer. My love and passion is painting. I also am an excellent fascilitator. My art generates some income but not enough to be self supportive.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I have developed many skills as an artist, instructor, and minister. I want learn to how to coalesce my strengths and abilities to clarify my artistic identity and audience. I have art prints in 13 countries, yet I don't know how to capitalize on it. Ultimately I want to be a financialy successful artist that impacts the hearts of people through my paintings. I also would like to be a part of a team that creates a venue that allows artists from around the world to come, create, study, restore, and or perform their specific gifts. I have recently leased a residential/commercial property in downtown Goodlettsville and desire to to open my own art gallery of spirituaal art. That will also dfeature guest and student artists.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I have relocated, again and though I am still in transition, I dream of using this property to as a venue to connect people to the heart of God through art. It is taking much longer to get things in oder, yet i persist!
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I am articulate and communicate well with others. I am a woman of compassion and empathy. I am a fascilitator and instructor. I find speaking to large or small groups easy. I am a stratigic thinker. All of this finds expression through painting. I have painted visions and dreams before live audiences and alone in my studio. I have seen lives deeply touched through the images I have been given.
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
As visual artist I have paintings and prints of those paintings. I also believe that will soon have a series of books that use my art to encourage people to engage in conversation with God. I also speak about the significance of art with in a spiritual community. God frequently used imagery to communicate with His people. I have done conferences and sevices where I actively paint during the program. I also have a porfolio of murals that i have painted in acrylic and portraits in pastels and oils.

Debra, I just posted a photo of you on our Be Your Finest Art group site. It was a delight to have you at Innovate and to experience, first hand, your creation of the paintings on the tiles. What a great addition to our event. I pray your Leiper's Fork gig goes well. Let us know when you will be there and we will try to get out there to see you in action. Blessings, Joanne
Debra - my wonderful friend Jen McDonough surprised me today by sending me some absolutely beautiful note cards you created and a picture of Jesus with the loaves and fishes - Your Little is Much! Your work is absolutely gorgeous and this was such a great surprise to me. I wanted you to know how much I love the cards and picture. You have so much talent and I can see even more clearly why satan is shaking in those pointy boots! God has big things in store for you! Thank you for sharing your talents with the world.
