Deb was born in Sumner, Iowa and raised on a farm. Her interest in photography began in high school, but her interest in animals led her to become a veterinarian first. She practiced veterinary medicine for 17 years. Deb also has a BFA in Drawing from University of Northern Iowa. Deb's interest in nature has brought her back to photography and drawing. Now she roams around parks and back roads in search of beautiful, interesting, odd, touching, unusual photographs. Her goal is to show people that there is beauty in what God has created, and we just have to look for it with open eyes, hearts, and minds. Deb currently lives in the country outside of Hawkeye, Iowa.
