Deborah was born in 1966 in Anoka, MN. She received a B.F.A in sculpture and a B.A. in photography from MSUM.
Gerling works in sculpture and can tend towards the furniture side. Deborah’s work is a look upon herself in her solitude and inner voice. She uses her art to connect with the viewer in a potent and unadulterated visual level. This gives her freedom to voice her views on the world.
Her work has been shown at The Rourke Art Gallery Museum as well as juried shows at MSUM during her schooling.
