About

Debbie von TempskyI have been inspired by the tropical paradise in which I live, the water, the islands and the colors. I received a BA in Fine Arts from the University of Puget Sound. I started painting in watercolors, and about three years ago a friend shared her oils with me. I then took some workshops with artists such as George Allan, Cynthia Britain, Julie Houck and Mary Pettis. Each of these artists taught me so much. I continue to grow and learn as a colorist.

You can see my original paintings at the Hui No`eau art center in Makawao, and By the Bay in Paia, where you can also buy note cards featuring my images. My note cards are also available at Tedeschi Vineyards in Ulupalakua, and Hurricane in Makawao.
