I am an adult who wants to continue developing my painting ability & to find my true 'personal style.' Debbie understood immediately what I wanted to do & gave me suggested daily sketching exercises to begin this process of discovery. Debbie is an open & friendly woman with loads of artistic talent. I felt at ease with her from the start & I believe that she will be an effective coach for me as I move to a new, more focused level of making art. I encourage other adults who, like me, are self-taught to take themselves seriously as artists & to contact Debbie for direction in their own art journey. I know that making art has enriched my life for years; "investing" in a teacher like Debbie will no doubt add even more to its value in my life.May 23, 2017
Debbie is a natural art educator- she is wonderful with children of all ages! She taught my daughter to improve her artistic skills in an after school class one to one, and showed her how to feel confident about herself. Debbie is a creative artist and her home and studio is filled with imaginative and wondrous art! A+++++May 5, 2017
My son (11 years old) has been learning from Debbie for the past several months. She is very dedicated to teaching and pays close attention to what he likes to do and guide him to develop his potential. My son made a great progress while being taught from her. She is also very kind and talkative, and always keep him a good company!Jun 1, 2017
I have several children's books that Deborah Shilling has illustrated and they are wonderful! My favorite "Sago, A Very Special Service Dog". Not only is the story great and informative but the illustrations are fantastic and so well done. My children loved the book and I would highly recommend it.May 8, 2017
Deborah is a talented, and passionate art teacher. She really loves teaching kids art. She taught my son how to draw and he loves drawing now. I highly recommend her as an art teacher. She also teaches adults.May 13, 2017
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I work with a customer I listen to what it is that they want to do or have done. If they want classes we can set up a convenient time and schedule our first class. Then we get started. If I meet a client that wants Illustration work done or murals done. I listen to what they want to have done, then I will produce sketches for the job to be approved by the client. After approval I will begin the project. I always listen to my clients and I am very professional in my work.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The School of Visual Arts in New York, and I have a Master of Fine Arts in Illustration and Animation from The University of Miami, Miami, Florida.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I have been an artist and creating artwork for most of my life. I teach art to Children, Teens and Adults. I am a muralist and I do commissioned artwork.
