Deborah is a horsewoman, raised on a cattle ranch in northern Idaho and brought up in a competitive family of rodeo champions. She holds a BA degree with a fine-art major following study in Italy where her passion for sculpture came alive and continues today. In the post-Vietnam era, Deborah gained recognition and won competitions to create veterans’ memorials including the Inland Northwest Vietnam Veterans Memorial, Montana State Vietnam Veterans Memorial, and Washington State Korean War Veterans Memorial. At the same time she was creating many monumental portrait sculptures, some of which include Bing Crosby, Adolf Coors, Henry Kaiser, Frank Erwin, and commissions for Boy Scouts of America and other corporations. She and her husband, Fred Fellows, live on their horse ranch in Arizona and she now prefers sculpting the Western heritage from which she came.
