Deborah Lynn Irmas
Deborah Lynn Irmas lives and works in Santa Monica, California. Her work originated from the simple act of noticing a piece of painter’s tape on her studio wall. Process, materials, and aesthetics all play a role in her Plexiglass creations. Her present work on paper is a reflection of the current times and the massive amounts of information and disinformation that she is bombarded with on a daily basis.
The artist’s work is part of MOLAA’s (Museum of Latin American Art) permanent collection and has been exhibited internationally and nationally including galleries in Los Angeles, Palm Springs, Pasadena, and Puglia, Italy. She has also exhibited at the Santa Monica Museum of Art and the Venice Art Walk. Irmas has received various awards such as the Award of Merit by the Society of Illustrators, the UCLA Clifton Webb Scholarship, and the Barnsdall Art Award. She completed her BFA in Painting, Sculpture, and Graphic Arts from UCLA and continued courses in Fashion Illustration, Graphic Design, Textile Design, Printmaking, and most notably has been a long time student of Tom Wudl, whom she thanks as her mentor
