Debra Haden was born and raised in the mid-west. Creative from the start, Haden was influenced by her mother's general creative abilities and painting skills, and her grandmother's artistic sewing prowess. After completing her B.S. in Clothing and Textiles, Haden started her artistic career on the east coast. It was then that she officially picked up a paint brush and created a collection of femme fatale paintings. The apparel industry, while challenging and glamorous paid very little and she knew there must be a more satisfying way to make a living. Haden vowed that if she were to be creative she would only work for herself. After testing out several cities the artist currently resides in Venice, CA. It was upon moving to California in 2005 that she began to paint seriously, and can now be found showing artwork and throwing events throughout Venice, Santa Monica, and Los Angeles. Glimpses of Haden's apparel and lingerie design background can be found throughout her current works.
