I spent the morning with my neighbor Debbie Schirra. She is a fellow artist and her business card states craftsman. Since it is 2010 and her card is a few years old ( Debbie- follower of the golden rule, waste not, want not) I will be politically correct and call her a craftsperson-- so no need to email now.
No matter her title the woman has talent, skills and maybe a bit of magic. To find Debbie you have to travel down a country road then make the turn into her long driveway. At the end of the drive you'll find a fantastic mix of gardens and a fairy tale house tucked away from the world.
The picture of the bird window at the top of the page sits in a prominent space at the front of her home. The Peace Love and Joy to All Who Enter perches at the top of a very impressive door.
This next picture is of a door she made..I know..WOW!
Here is a ceiling light in her home. She has others in her house with different themes.
Next up we visited her studio to look at a work in progress.
