Name: Debra Lee Murrow
Age: 50-something 🙂
Kids: Two teens
City you live in: Scottsdale
A typical day in my life includes… Creating lots of art! I start off with my quiet time, then a workout – either HotWorx, rollerblade or a swim, then usually networking on zoom. I love to inspire people to get creative, so I’ll usually post a video and demo an art medium I love.
I was born… in Newton, NJ
My favorite thing about Arizona… are the hiking trails and yes, I love the heat:-)
I’m listening to… Praise music or my Bible app
My family… is wonderful, and very creative. My husband and kids all help to support me with my art passions!
If I could have dinner with anyone, it would be… Pablo Picasso
One thing I cannot live without… Black Rock Coffee
When I was younger, I wanted to be… I wanted to travel… and work with people.
I’m inspired by… The Word of God
The one person who motivates me is… Overcomers – Anyone who overcomes adversity – people who actually do what they say they are going to do!
If I could change anything in the world, it would be… instituting Art as a mainstream class just like the other basic classes like reading, writing, and arithmetic. The world would be a better place if children came out of elementary school knowing how to actually draw realistically because there is a fundamental aspect of art to every career.
The perfect day would be… blocking out a large part of the day to work on a really big canvas and play in art all day long!
My first job was… working at the airport ticket desk and gate for Pan-Am Airlines at Boston Logan International Airport
My favorite escape… a full day at the spa
My life… is to inspire others to get creative and become aware of the words they speak.
I’m currently working on… a proposal to do a 3-month traveling interactive COLORME art show with 11 of my COLORME canvases all created upon by people in different age groups (5-10), (11-20), (21-30) and so on. At its end, there would be 10 unique COLORME canvases created by different age groups, and the 11th canvas created by the people in all different ages. The show would also include a collection of 17 finished COLORME canvases from previous years.
Always… Never use always and never in an adverse sentence.
Never… say Never
Favorite Quote… “Fact and fiction knows the same diction”.
Biggest Dream… A card company to license my COLORME name cards to help make COLORME a household brand!
My Pet Peeve(s)… negativity & complainers – I only want positive, encouraging people in my life!
