Debbie Hayes

Debbie Hayes decided at age eight, while sitting in an art class, that she had to be a better artist than Jenny Berg who sat in front of her. The decision stuck, though Debbie never was sure if she was ever better than Jenny!

Debbie attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and graduated with a BA in fine art with a painting concentration. After spending some time as an illustrator for an education company, she discovered the graphics department was more fun so she worked as a graphic artist, art director, creative director for ad agencies, magazines and the local newspaper for many years.

In 2001 Debbie saw a Speigel catalog cover that fascinated her with its color, texture, and lighting.   Debbie then tried her hand on her own walls at home  While still working fulltime Debbie was hired afterhours and on weekends at the High Point Furniture Market to faux a gigantic showroom, then connected with an interior designer in town and did a huge showhouse. Debbie still had no classes at that point - But if you were to ask popular instructor Barb Skivington, she thought Debbie was nuts but she thought she had guts and potential and Debbie started taking classes from her.

Currently, Debbie is doing work on floors, walls, ceilings, countertops, etc. but her newest adventure is teaching Annie Sloan as a mini-stockist through Barb Skivington, plus new classes for painting and glass.

Debbie has a line of glass art with a custom-designed wall mount at the Furniture Market - check it out on facebook at Dion Hayes Design Studio for P. Chrisley Intl.
