The Big Mysteries of Life drive Debra Overbey’s curiosity. She constantly seeks answers to who we all are and why we are here. Not one to take herself too seriously, however, she is quick to laugh and able to find humor and the absurd in almost any situation.
After a 34-year career as a high school librarian, Debra now spends time exercising the very foreign right side of her brain by delving into artisan crafts. Her art is inspired by her quest for greater understanding.
Deb lives on wooded lake property in Dexter, Michigan. An introvert bordering on reclusive, she relishes the seclusion. She values time with family which includes 5 grandchildren, and 2 grand-dogs. She also enjoys playing golf, foot golf (look it up!), games of any kind, yoga, reading, and world-wide travel.
The business name, dAO ArtWorks, springs from the cosmic coincidence that her initials DAO are the phonetic pronunciation and the alternate spelling of The Tao, which she fully embraces.
