Deborah Mansfield was born in 1959, grew up in central Ohio and studied Landscape Architecture at Ohio State University. In 1982, Deborah married James Mansfield who is also a Landscape Architect. The Mansfield's lived in Chicago IL, Los Angeles CA, and Houston TX. They now reside happily in West Point, Mississippi.
Mansfield practiced landscape architecture for 9 years. During her time at home raising their sons Brian and Steven, she decided to take up her passion of painting. When their sons went to school Mansfield started a decorative painting business that led her to paint the interiors of many prestigious addresses throughout the southwest. After 20 successful years in business Jim and Deborah semi-retired to West Point, MS where she now paints murals and occasionally works on projects across the country. Mansfield has an art studio and gallery in West Point located on Main Street where she enjoys hosting paint parties and creating her personal work.
