The Artist Says:

It is such a blessing and a privilege to be an artist. My greatest satisfaction comes from successfully connecting with the viewer on a emotional level through my work...when they feel the emotions I felt as I painted a particular subject, why I chose the subject in the first place. There is so much beauty all around us, even in simple things. My hope is that the viewer may be able to stop and see the subjects I paint in a new light, in a way they never noticed before.

“Capturing the Spirit”
Nebraska artist, Debra Joy Groesser received her BFA degree in art in 1978 from Bellevue College (Bellevue, NE).  Debra paints many subjects but is best known for her impressionistic landscape paintings, particularly her plein air work.  “Painting is such a spiritual experience for me. Nothing inspires me more than being out on location, capturing the subtle nuances of color, light and atmosphere that can only be achieved by painting from nature." Debra also paints portraits and figurative works. In 2011, she was commissioned by Omaha Performing Arts to create a large portrait of Richard and Mary Holland, which hangs at the Holland Performing Arts Center in Omaha, Nebraska. Her work can be found in several corporate collections in the Omaha area as well as private collections in the US and around the world.

Her work has been featured in several national art publications including International Artist (June/July 2021), Art of the West (March 2018), American Art Collector (May 2010), Southwest Art and a feature article in Plein Air Magazine (Oct/Nov. 2014).  She was a finalist in Southwest Art Magazine’s 2012 Artistic Excellence competition.
