Deb Gioia

Deb Gioia Texas Hill Country artist.Deb Gioia, born of Italian immigrants, was raised in St. Louis, Missouri. There she earned a BA in Psychology and a Master’s degree in Counseling. However art was a recurring theme throughout her life, methodically developing her talent while pursuing other interests. In 2004, after several years in private practice, she moved to North Padre Island, Texas to work full time as an artist.

Steel, copper, brass, stained glass, wire, welding, brazing, soldering, these are a few of the things that make up the components and processes of Deb Gioia’s work. A free assembly of shape and design create her unique and whimsical forms of sculpture. From toaster parts to marbles, the work expresses the deep and rugged adventure of imagination without restrictions. A functional piece may tell time, or another might focus on the expression of an emotion. No two pieces are alike. Each individual art form has its own expressive flare.
