My name is Deborah Tyson. I am an illustrator who is passionate about capturing life and telling stories. I live in Pennsylvania, just outside of Philadelphia with my husband, three young boys, and our happy black dog. When I’m not drawing or painting I love being in the outdoors or making just about anything.

I graduated with a Bachelors degree in English literature from Cascade College in Portland, Oregon before moving to Philadelphia 17 years ago. I have been a creator all my life and taught myself how to draw, paint, and illustrate. It is my biggest passion in my life.

I am currently working with Terrill Haigler on his upcoming book, “I’m Cool Too,” set to publish in April 2022. If you would like to keep up with me on this project and many others, follow me on Instagram @deborahstyson.
