Debra Cepeda

Award winning artist Debra Cepeda has lived in the Pacific Northwest her entire life and comes from a long line of artists. She grew up in Renton, Washington on the same property her grandparents settled on in the 1940’s.

“I have always loved to draw. As long as I can remember I have always drawn or painted horses. I will paint other subjects, wildlife and landscapes but inevitably I come back to my first love of horses. Creating art can be joyful, painful and therapeutic for me. Above all I feel art should be beautiful, and give the viewer happiness”.

The past several years her primary medium has been pastel and she has been garnering many awards. She retired from the Seattle Police Department in 2015 and currently lives with her husband and her black cat in Auburn, Washington.
