Debra Nielsen grew up riding and caring for horses, which inspired an early love for nature that has followed her throughout her life. It’s also what inspires her creatively. “I love the colors, textures, and compositions I find in the mountains, the woods, and the ocean. It all recharges me, and that energy always makes its way into my work.”
Debra joined the Hallmark family in 1997. She spends her days sculpting ornaments for the Keepsake ornament line.
