A native of Kinston, N. C., Deborah (Debbie) Phillips did her undergraduate studies at East Carolina University and graduate studies at Duke University. Eventually her career brought her to Morehead City in 2007, as a Family Nurse Practitioner at Sea Breeze Family Practice.
Although proficient in several mediums, Debbie’s preference is oil painting. Children engaged in play, such as beach scenes, are her favorite subjects, but she also enjoys general portraiture, still life, and landscapes.
Debbie is a member of the Portrait Institute of New York and the American Portrait Society. She accepts commissions on a limited basis depending on her schedule.
