Debra Torger is a mixed-media artist and instructor. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Art Education from James Madison University in Harrisonburg, VA. She lived in Harrisonburg for 22 years before moving to San Francisco and then to Hawaii where she lived for 10 years.
Since moving to Sarasota, Florida she has developed an art program at Community Haven where clients with developmental disabilities have the opportunity to explore creativity and show work in venues like the APD office in St. Petersburg, FL, the Universal Unitarian Church in Sarasota, and in their own gallery.
Her paintings are bold and colorful and her mixed-media soft sculptures are full of life. Her artwork is influenced by the places she’s lived and the people she’s known.
