“Your creativity shines in the variety of ways she brings stories to life. For example: many years ago my great-grandfather distracted himself from a painful time in his life by painting a beautiful decorative trim on the walls of the farmhouse. The farmhouse is long gone, but the boards from the walls with his painting have been kept and cherished by family members. It was Deborah’s idea to scan the motif from the boards and use it as a border on our project. To the average bystander it just is a decorative accent. But many family members were in tears when they recognized something that was part of their childhood and the fabric of our family.”
