< Deborah Sisco
United States



Having grown up in the Midwest during a time when art was not an acceptable career choice, Deborah was primarily self-taught, reading books about early abstract expressionists, attending art exhibitions, and experimenting on her own. After working in her husband’s business and raising a family, she decided that to advance her love of art she needed a formal education in art. She enrolled herself in the College of Charleston and at the age of 69 received her B.F.A. with honors. Today she loves experimenting with new techniques and works extensively with AI when creating new works.

My work is about seeing things differently and the freedom to allow it to be different. I believe that to love art is all about learning to see.

My viewers should experience my art not how I see it, but how they see it. It should be a personal experience that is different for each person. That experience should be visually pleasing, happy, or even disturbing, but not empty. What you see is what it is.
