Purchase Artwork by Debra Mixon Holliday

Debra Mixon Holliday


Debra is a life-long resident of Florida and grew up along the central Gulf coast of the state. As a child, she had free reign to wander my grandparents' farm and ranch there. Those wanderings began a foundation of watching and observing the flora and fauna of the Gulf Coast and Southeast that now influence her art.


In her work, Debra heeds a deep-rooted calling to bear witness to the environment of her native region. She explores nature as a boundless well of subject matter and our relationships to nature as an entry point to addressing themes on boundaries, connections, sense of place, time, memory, and identity.


To create images, Debra looks to the small stories and the special-ness of the creatures and the environments they rely on. Plying woods, backwaters, and even my own backyard, she raids a treasure chest of line, pattern, texture and form. A variety of printmaking techniques, including collagraph, monotype, relief, and intaglio, are employed to bring images to life. Mixed media work is enhanced with collage and drawing in graphite and colored pencil.


Debra holds a BA in visual arts from Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, Florida and a BA in English from the University of South Florida. She now resides in her adopted hometown of St. Augustine, Florida, continuing to learn, explore and pursue her art.
