Ms Debra Kessler was born on 16 August 1958 in Melita, Canada. She began to paint as early as in the 1990s. In a farming accident in 1998 she lost both arms and also injured her legs. Debra is proud to be the mother of three daughters and the grandmother of two grandsons. Her new occupational therapist encouraged her to contact VDMFK. Debra taught herself to paint and has taken several painting lessons so far. Currently she paints using acrylics and tries to capture on canvas the things she sees.
