Movin’ On Up!

It looks like Own A Debbie is making the big time. While it’s not exactly the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Hub in New Smyrna Beach is one of the hottest galleries around.

New Smyrna Beach is among the 100 Best Small Art Towns in America. We are proud to have been selected to have some of our work displayed here.

One of our favorite pieces you will see at the Hub On Canal!

Everything’s Coming Up Debbie!

Look for Own A Debbie all around Volusia County in the coming months.

First, make plans to visit Florida’s number one attraction over the Christmas holidays.  Stetson Mansion, the Sunshine State’s  first luxury home, ushers in the season with amazing holiday displays in every room in the Mansion.


While you are there, pay particular attention to the art inthe ‘Frozen’ Room where you will find the award winning, Snowfall In Central Park painting. We are thrilled our work was selected to be showcased in this prestigious home at the happiest time of the year!

On November 1, Own A Debbie will take part in the Museum of Art DeLand’s annual Holiday Showcase.  We were chosen from more than 40 other submissions to participate. We are honored to be selected and thrilled to meet all the art enthusiasts in DeLand.

Mark your calendars…On December 4, from 4-7 p.m. I’ll be at the Award Winning Quality Inn International Speedway for my very first One Woman Show. It promises to be a fun event and will afford you the opportunity to view and purchase fine art and see why so many travelers choose the Quality Inn when they visit Daytona Beach.

More details to come!

Quality Inn International Speedway,

2250 W. International Speedway Blvd., Daytona Beach

This award winning Quality Inn sits directly across from the Speedway. They have always been fans of Own A Debbie and the feeling is mutual. Currently, they have a number of ‘Debbie’s’ gracing their lobby and they are hosting my very first One Woman Show. There will be Wine and Cheese and tours of this beautiful property, which in itself is a work of art. Of course, admission is free.


Too Many Originals; Not Enough Space

We’re  downsizing from a house to a condo, so I’ve decided to sell all my original artwork at bargain prices. You can expect to save     anywhere from 50 to 85 percent off the original price.

I will post here when the sale begins, probably around the end of September, just in time for Holiday gift giving!

Introducing the Seri-Debbie and a Limited Time Discount on Original Debbies!

There’s a new way to Own A Debbie – the Seri-Debbie!

If originals are out of reach and there’s a Debbie you can’t live without, here are two ways to save a little cash:

You  can order directly from our gallery and get a high quality, unsigned, giclee fine art print.  You can order it on paper, canvas, aluminum, wood or acrylic.

But for those who want more, the Seri-Debbie was born! What is a Seri-Debbie? You might recall the pre-technology serigraph print. It was a high quality reprint, with something extra: they were hand signed and special painted enhancements were added by the artist making it more valuable than a standard lithograph.

Here’s how the pricing works:

       Scene From Giverny
Scene From Giverny

Let’s say you order a 16×20 giclee print of, ‘Scene From Giverny’ on paper.

The unsigned reprint on fine art paper, framed and matted to 20×24, will cost about $125. But an enhanced and signed Seri-Debbie, framed and matted to 20×24 will cost $225.*  The original 25×30 on canvas, sells for $995.

Because you’ve read this all the way to the end, we have a special deal for you: Visit our online gallery by clicking on the hats to the left of this page. Look over our Original Debbie’s. All sizes and prices are listed. Take 50% off the marked price and an Original Debbie is yours! In addition, I will offer free delivery within a 50 mile radius. Otherwise, buyer to pick up or pay actual shipping costs. Offer valid through June 30, 2014

*Pricing varies depending on print size. Seri-Debbie’s  only available on standard sizes:  8×10, 11×14, 16×20, 20×24. Email for an exact quote. Add applicable sales taxes. Shipping is an additional charge.


Coming soon…New ways you can, Own A Debbie!

Hats Off!
Hats Off!

In the coming weeks, we will introduce  the Seri-Debbie and we’ll be offering weekly specials on our original artwork.

Everyone should Own A Debbie!

Stay tuned!

Wanted: Art Collectors With An Eye For The Next Big Thing

Okay.  So you didn’t buy that bargain Andy Warhol when you had the chance. This is your opportunity to get in on the ground floor with an up and coming artist, Deborah Boyd,  using a new medium known as Debbieism. That’s right, Debbieism!

Hundreds of giclee prints of these have  already been sold,  but the originals are still mostly intact. These colorful works of art are on gallery wrapped canvas and ready to decorate your home and office. If you are searching for something special for that hard to fit space, you can probably find it in the Own A Debbie Collection.

Here’s why Deborah Boyd says  you should Own A Debbie Now:

“I started painting just six years ago. Think of me as a modern day Grandma Moses only my original art is selling at bargain prices.

I’ve had cancer twice. How long can I live?  Hey, we all know that prices skyrocket after an artist dies.  I’m just stating the obvious”.

So collectors, what are you waiting for?  But one piece or the entire lot. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to get in on the ground floor of the art world.
