Testimonials from past clients


I commissioned Deb LaFogg to do a pastel portrait of my beloved Molly McGee. I am blessed to have met such a talented artist.

Believe me, I am way more than just impressed. Deb captured her beautiful eyes and brought them to life. This is a work of art I will treasure forever. Missing my Molly.

Thank you so much Deb LaFogg for creating such a beautiful memorial to my beloved Molly.

Pastel on Archival Pastel Paper

I just want to say that Deb Lafogg is one of the best teachers I have ever had. Learning pastels was daunting until I took her class-she is a genius herself and she shares her skill with all of us in a positive and encouraging way.I feel so lucky to have had the experience and knowing her.

I met Deb LaFogg 5 years ago at an Arts and Craft Fair in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and was immediately impressed with, and in awe of her ability to create realistic pastel paintings of Nature. I signed up for her weekly art lessons, and my friends and family have been amazed by my progress in creating realistic pastels. Anyone who wishes to improve his or her artistic skills would be rewarded by joining her group lesson classes. Deb is a pleasure to work with and is an excellent teacher.

Deb LaFogg is a gifted artist and an outstanding teacher. As a student in two sessions of Exploring Possibilities in Pastels, I have experienced that Deb attends to each student's needs to help the individual meet his/her potential. Her lessons are well thought out, creative, and inspiring. She introduces her students to a variety of materials and techniques and is generous with her knowledge, her resources and her encouragement. It is obvious she loves her art and sharing her expertise.

Classes are fun! whether it's learning to underpaint, how to properly sharpen pencils, frame your work, make your own paper, or "see" the color in everyday sights. Deb is able to help her students achieve their goals in painting pastel.

Deb is a positive and helpful critic who has an appreciation for the efforts of her students. It has been a pleasure to be in her classes and I will not hesitate to continue as her student.

As a student in Deb's pastel class I've been able to build upon skills that I already have in a relaxed, fun and supportive environment. Perviously my experience had been with still life, however learning about landscape painting, application of pastels and underpainting opened up a new world of possibilities for me. I would definitely recommend this class to students of all levels.
