Who I Am

Deborah Kolp is an Indiana artist who specializes in oils, acrylics and works in mixed media. She earned her AFA at Watkins College of Art and Design in Nashville Tennessee before returning to college for a BFA in her thirties after having three children. Over the next twenty years Kolp wrote curriculum for a private school and taught art for elementary age children, afterschool and Summer programs. She now is a director and teacher at Plumb Arts in the Meridian Kessler area and teaches at The Art Lab in the Carmel Arts District.

Kolp is a highly diversified art instructor who enjoys teaching all ages but particularly those who want to explore the visual arts later in life. She has led art retreats and workshops geared toward developing intuition through expressive art in order to facilitate the participants discovery of their unique visual language. She now offers an art and yoga series using mindfulness as a springboard into the creative expression.

Deborah’s work has been published in the Middle Tennessee State Annual Art catalog, St. Anthony’s Messenger online magazine, The Annual Indianapolis Coalition for Homelessness (CHIP) publication and others. Her Work has sold at the Art for Healing and Meridian-Kessler Neighborhood Association Auctions along with multiple galleries. Commissions and collectors include Anglican and Catholic Churches, therapist offices and private clients throughout the Southeast and Midwest.
