About Debbie Marie Arambula
“The Heart Artist”
As a performing dancer at the age of 3, Debbie began her career of bringing smiles to the hearts of many, while winning 1st place in a Baby Beauty contest at the Montgomery Theater in San Jose, California.
By five, she was making colorful gifts of ‘Heartwork’ for her family using scraps of heart shaped tissue-paper on recycled wood. By six, Debbie discovered that dance performances on stage would bring happiness to a room full of people all at the same time!
As a child, she spent her summers with her grandparents & cousins in Santa Rosa, California. Constantly encouraged by her adored artistic grandmother, Dorothy, she gave painting a try and tapped into to her life’s passion that would not fully bloom till later in life.
Performing in over 350 multi-cultural dance and singing performances, it was not till the age of 35 she would uncover her deepest passion for dancing with her hands and fingers on canvas as her life’s calling.
Today her Heartworks uplift, inspire and bring hope to the lives of collectors worldwide.
