San Diego-based artist Debbie Solan, works in a multitude of mediums. Originally from Dublin, Ireland, she views life through an imaginative spectrum. Color and its ability to affect mood motivates her design choices, and are ultimately reflected in her innovative and original works of art.
Co-founder of Fusionglass Co. in La Mesa, CA..in 2003 Debbie is now sole proprietor. She changed the name to Idea FIeld to reflect the more diverse offerings of art and classes. Both a Gallery & working studio Idea FIeld promotes the arts through exhibitions, events, teaching programs and an open studio policy that encourages the community to drop in and create.
Not one to limit herself by genre, Debbie's passion for art finds appreciation in all of its forms. She has experience that ranges from clay, kiln fused glass, painting, photography & mosaics, to fashion & theatrical design. Her love of art is lifelong, self-taught and compulsive. Equally passionate about the environment, she works to foster a sense of stewardship through large-scale art installations created from recycled, upcycled or salvaged materials.
