Debbie has been an artist since she was old enough to hold a pencil. Although destined for art school, Debbie chose a “sensible” career, becoming a secretary and working for a High Street bank. The early part of her life was dedicated to raising a family of three and caring for a menagerie of animals ranging from domestic dogs and cats to goats, chickens, sheep and horses. Once Debbie had nurtured her family, it was time to move on to her true spiritual path of Healer and Spiritual Artist.
For many years she has been a professional Wildlife artist and continued to work with horses. However, the time came to put her groom’s boots aside and become a Crystal Healer and work at MBS shows. She attained the highly respected Crystal Diploma provided by the SVA. Debbie is an established Reiki practitioner and has studied Aura Soma, Master Colour Healing and Quantum Touch.
Debbie’s artwork is intuitively connected to the highest spiritual level. Every client’s portrait is drawn from deep spiritual insight. She feels honored and privileged to draw your Spirit Guide during the shows and hopes that her beautiful portraits bring happiness and empowerment into her client’s lives. Her love of portraiture, nature and its magnificent creatures provides the most beautiful, inspiring and healing imagery. Debbie’s work has evolved from working as a professional artist, healer and many years of connecting on a deep intuitive/spiritual level. Her journey into Being a Spiritual Artist began as a natural consequence of her own spiritual development, a process greatly aided by her wonderful friend and mentor, Jewel Marie Leaf. She would often be beside our crystal stall at shows on her own stall and would be casting an eye over Debbie’s healing couch to ask when she would be bringing her pencils instead. Jewel Marie did not have to teach Debbie to be an artist as she has been painting and drawing all her life, but what she did teach her was to listen to her intuition to bring through the Spiritual aspect. Jewel Marie seeks to empower her students to develop their own inner spirituality, to unlock their gifts and talents and to mentor their progress ~ to find out more about Jewel Marie’s one to one mentorship please see the following link: www.jewelmarieleaf.com.
