Deborah Nielsen works in the watercolor and acrylic mediums. She began her adventures with watercolor and advanced very quickly. This inspired her to begin experimenting in acrylics, which became her second love. Deborah credits her success and love of these mediums to the  local art instructors here in the valley, who helped her develop her God given talent.

Growing up in the upper Midwest, first on a dairy farm as a little girl and then becoming a ranchers wife, inspired Deborah’s love and appreciation of animals and the beauty of the country atmosphere. Deborah, along with her husband Larry, is now semi-retired and living in Wittmann Az. She is pursuing her dream of capturing the beauty around her and her love of animals. For a few months in the summer she returns to Nebraska and helps work the ranch and teaches watercolor classes at a local shop.

Deborah is juried into the Wickenburg Art Club and has competed in the Artisan Fair Art Show during Gold Rush Days for the past few years, where each year she has won honors in both mediums. In 2018 she was also juried into the Glendale Fine Art Show with two of her paintings, “Blue Agave” and “Platinum Vintage”. In 2019 The West of Center Art show in the Desert Caballeros Western Museum, in Wickenburg Az, also accepted two of Deborah’s paintings, “Chinks” and “Platinum Vintage”, for showing and sale.
