Debra Elmore-Nesheim, Visual Artist

After completing a degree in illustration, my journey has included routes through anthropology, medicine and missions. These interests have taken me to life in Montana, Colorado and Wisconsin. They have taken me to the Red Cliff Reservation and the Navajo Nation. I've been blessed on service trips to New Zealand, Peru, Liberia and Tanzania. I believe my art reflects my love of these places, traditions, histories and the people I encountered in each.
