Debbie Lee Mostel Biography

"Best of Show" award at the Lighthouse Museum & Art Center.

…I’m a beach girl. When I was little I would sit alone on the dunes and think that the crashing waves were “Mother Natures Heartbeat”. I remember how motivated I was to create art after an exquisite performance by lightning or watching the delicate but powerful dance of a butterfly…

After a charmed 15 year career as a fashion jewelry designer, I took time off to raise my son. The urge to create beckoned and I was back to college for landscape design and a new career. While working in the gardens, I found myself being pulled back to my roots as a sculptor, painter and again, my 1st love, jewelry design...this time in the steampunk genre.

Recently, I’ve developed a fascination for the construct of technology---the intricate designs of motherboards, heat coils and laser pick ups. This came about when my son & his friends were smashing an old transistor radio. We were all fascinated by the “guts”. Thanks boys, this led to my newest collection……
