Debbie Orlando Morich - Folk Artist
Folk Artist Debbie Orlando Morich found her joy when she began to paint. With a Master’s of Education in College Student Personnel and a life-long appreciation of art in all its forms, she considers this calling to be a “happy accident.” In mid-2009, Debbie’s world was forever changed when she was diagnosed with a very rare cancer of the appendix, which had already spread throughout her abdomen. While recovering from what is known as the “mother of all surgeries,” she began exploring art to assist in the healing process.
Debbie’s intention is to evoke joy and healing in others through inspirational paintings. She loves to use re-claimed surfaces such as wood scraps and discontinued wallpaper or metal trays as her canvas. There is a special beauty in bringing a new spark of freshness to the worn-out pieces of our lives. In gratitude for all who gave her a new energy for healing, she commits to praying intentionally for all who are moved by her art.
