Debbie Thomas

The Pinnacle Bank Artist of the Month for November is Debbie Thomas of Mitchell. Debbie has a nice variety of her paintings.


Debbie grew up on a cattle ranch near Pinedale Wyo. She always had a love for horses and art and pursued both at Colorado State University, graduating in 1984. Her art degree led to almost 30 years of drafting and architectural illustrating and rendering. During that time she married John Thomas and had two children, Andrew and Lauren. They have lived in Mitchell for 24 years. Debbie’s “Creative Design” business came about after 13 years of interior painting as she wanted to get back to more artistic work.


A year ago, she learned how to filet a goose and was fascinated with the intricate design and amazing beauty of the feathers. This lead to a bit of trial and error learning to paint on feathers, but they have been rewarding and enjoyed by many. Her love for animals and the outdoors are her subject matter with horses being her favorite.  Besides feathers, Debbie enjoys painting on reclaimed wood, rocks and of course canvas. She is working in a variety of mediums including pencil, acrylic and watercolor.


Please stop in during November and see all the amazing art work and they are all for sale.
