Bio

Debbie Korbel is an artist whose creativity has been applied to various media including painting and sculpture as well as writing television scripts, short stories and song lyrics. Her sculptures have been exhibited and collected internationally and appeared in movie and television shows.

She is thrilled to include Steven Tyler, of Aerosmith, as one of her collectors.  In 2019 she won first place in The Modern Male Show at Bowersock Gallery. In 2013, her work received awards in the Spring and Winter issues of Creative Quarterly Magazine.  She has been the subject of newspaper and magazine articles, the latest feature article (August 2018) was published in these three newspapers: The Pasadena Independent, The Monrovia Weekly, and The Arcadia Weekly.  She has also been featured in the October 2018 issue of Beautiful Bizarre magazine, Diversions LA magazine and the July 2019 American Art Collector Magazine.

Also, in 2018, she won a coveted spot in a global open call, exhibiting in a public art program run by The Garment District Alliance of New York City. Her art was featured on a banner in Times Square. This year, 2019, she was awarded 2nd place out of over 1900 entries in the Crocker Kingsley Museum Annual exhibition. She will also be exhibiting her work in 2020 in a joint exhibit at MOAH (Museum of Art & History) in Lancaster, CA.

Artist Statement
WHY???

I make art because it is fun.  You might say, "So do six-year-olds," and then I might say, "I know you are, but what am I?" And then we might both stick our tongues out-- anyway you get the idea.  
 
Or maybe, making art is a bit of a compulsion, channeled in a somewhat healthier behavior than excessive hand-washing or collecting a giant ball of string. Or perhaps it is like an instinctual drive.   Food.  Sex.  Art.
 
Anyway, luckily I became a sculptor, and not a drug addict or a career criminal.
