Debra Keirce creates paintings that tell stories of joy, desire, challenge and encouragement. She considers the magic in our reality, and depicts it to the best of her ability.
Using oil or acrylic paints, Debra draws from her own life to create art experiences for viewers across the globe. She paints in a tightly rendered realistic style with contemporary, Trompe L'Oeil and classical influences.
She specializes in small paintings. Part of her process for creating miniature fine art involves the use of magnifying lenses and close range binoculars. She enjoys demonstrating these techniques for art lovers.
Originally from Detroit, Debra has a degree in biochemical engineering and she worked as a corporate engineer at pharmaceutical facilities for fifteen years. During that time, she built her commission business. In 2010, Debra was able to begin painting full time. In December 2012 she was offered representation at Huckleberry Fine Art Gallery in Rockville, MD and Seaside Art Gallery in Nags Head, NC. In October 2014, Ellis-Nicholson Gallery asked her to become one of their artists.
Debra is proud to have signature memberships in The Miniature Artists of America, The Miniature Painters Sculptors Gravers Society of Washington D.C., Cider Painters of America and the Hilliard Society in Wells England.
