About Debbie Vail
Debbie Vail didn’t explore her interest in art until completing a 20-year nursing career and teaching. She discovered her love of portraiture and color at the Cleveland Institute of Art, Cuyahoga Community College, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and private instruction.

She is currently in her third year volunteering at Judson painting portraits of residents. This work was presented at Design a Life, a national conference sponsored by Cleveland State University in May, 2008.

Debbie has been a finalist in juried shows at the Art Guild of New York, Bay Arts of Ohio, and the Orange Art Center. She paints private portrait commissions. You can see her artwork at:
