Debra Casey

To Show in Members Gallery May 4 -June 11, 2016


Debra Casey: Debra was born in South Korea, raised in Smyth County, VA and currently lives in Abingdon, VA. She is employed as a software engineer. Debra can’t remember a time when she wasn’t creating some type of art. She works in a variety of media, “all types…I love them all” she says, but her favorites are wood carving and drawing. She simply enjoys “creating art with my hands and learning new skills and techniques.” Debra belongs to a wood carving group that meets weekly in Abingdon and is also a member of Holston Mountain Artisans Craft Association. Debra says about her exhibit, “My show is something a little different. It showcases my woodcarvings & burnings, no particular theme is selected… it’s really a hodge-podge variety of things I like to carve like caricatures, animals and pop culture. Some of the carvings are 3D in the round, some are relief, and others are a combo of carving/burning.”
