Growing up as the grand-daughter of a Russian-Mennonite refugee and a French-Canadian Metis, she was surrounded by a rich tradition of artisan ship ranging from quilt and lace-making to indigenous quill and bead work.

At a very early age Deb started with various types of embroidery and needlepoint, taught by her grandmother and mother.

Many years later Deb moved to Whitehorse. After taking up a moccasin-making course from Shelby Black jack, Deb started to play with traditional and contemporary designs, making slippers, clothing, Christmas stockings, key rings and other items, keeping in touch and learning from other beaders such as Liz Bosely and Shirley Frost.

In recent years Deb has worked more with fur, while she continues to experiment with different types of beads and other material. She is particular inspired by work of beading artist such as Metis Lisa Shepherd, OIjibwe Jesscia Gokey and Teresa Meer-Chasse of the White River First Nations.

4 Dog Night Creation was started in fall 2017, focusing on Yukon-specific themes with an attempt to purchase her material and fabric  locally, i.e. fur comes directly from Yukon trappers.
