It is my pleasure to capture the personality of your Fur Baby! All I need is a photo focusing on the face. Pet portraits make such special gifts. They are original, personal and timeless. The most popular size is 12x12 on a gallery-wrapped canvas but any size is doable. No frame is needed. We can discuss your preference for the background color and I can make recommendations.


Award-winning, contemporary artist Debi Starr feels happiest when creating. She has been a creator since she was a child, preferring blank paper and crayons to a coloring book. Before Converse High Tops came in colors, Debi dyed hers pink. Starr has always thought outside of the box, and her creativity has always been limitless. Debi Starr’s creative passion led her to Houston’s High School for the Performing and Visual Arts and then to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago to pursue her artistry and expand her horizon. However, after two years, the blustery winters blew Debi back to Texas. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Houston Baptist University along with a degree in Art Education, graduating Magna Cum Laude. She has successfully built her reputation and career as a fine artist and an art teacher.

Debi Starr has taught art to children and adults for thirty years and has been featured in numerous exhibits, juried shows, solo shows, galleries, and events. She has been a gallery/studio owner and promoted her own as well as other local artist’s works, taught workshops and classes and hosted art receptions.

Debi is one of Seabrook’s Pelican Artists and has painted over fifteen of the beloved statues. She gives back to several communities by donating pieces to various fundraisers and painting live at events. Starr participates in the National Society of Artists, Art on the Avenue, Celebration Seabrook, Lunar Rendezvous, Barktoberfest, The Witches of Seabrook and Artwalk in Galveston.

Debi Starr’s original paintings grace the walls of many homes and businesses in the United States as well as internationally. Her murals and decorative finishes can be found throughout The Greater Houston Area, and her prints are available online to all.

Debi’s paintings are vibrant and expressive in nature. She is diverse in style, subject matter and mediums. Debi uses acrylics, inks, watercolors, metallics and epoxy resin. Her work is constantly evolving and reflects where she is on her journey of life. Her Precious Metals creations shine and sparkle much like the artist. The unusual combination of materials encourages the viewer to take a closer look. Debi Starr may be driven to capture an emotion with the stroke of her paintbrush, explore the contour of a figure, focus on the folds of a blossom or portray an expression.

Whatever the painting may be, it is evident that the artist has put a piece of herself within her creation.
