Coming from a creative family, Deb Munroe was encouraged to create and explore from a young age. Deb worked as a professional graphic designer for twenty years, ran her own freelance business, and served as a government contractor. She has also worked with children at the YMCA and at the d’Art enter as the Public Relations Director and Summer Camp manager. Deb enrolled in her first Precious Metal Clay class in Ocracoke, and has continued to use the media expertly since. She creates PMC jewelry, as well as two- and three-dimensional mixed media works. Her works incorporate whimy, unusual materials and textures, and excellent craft. Formerly a resident artist at the d’Art Center, Deb is now an associate artist, where she maintains a small retail space at the Center.

Kim Herman has been creating art since she was old enough to hold her first crayon. She believes that everyone is born creative, but some people need a little “nudge” to help find their creative side.

In 2004 she began teaching various adult workshops, including mixed media, assemblage and altered books. In 2012, Kim became a Certified Zentangle Teacher (CZT).
