Portrait of an Artisan ~ Debs Designs

About the Artist:

Owner – designer Deborah Toner is a native of Toronto, Canada. Currently residing in Pickering, her “little shop of horrors” where she designs and manufactures her product is in her home.

After a 23 year career with Bell Canada she decided to turn her love of stained glass into a business and her previous hobby became all encompassing. Once a kiln was introduced into the workshop fused glass jewelery added an entirely different creative venue to her life. Soon decorative wire, beads and other items were added to the mix and the rest as they say is history.

Deb (as she prefers to be called) has a very loyal customer base. Her products are always changing and the enthusiasm with which she creates and produces her work never wanes. You can find her at Art and craft shows, charitable events, hospital and private office buildings. Just check the schedule for her current listing of shows.

Her memberships include:

  • The Ontario Craft Council
  • Scarborough Arts Council
  • Neilson Park Creative Art Centre
