Debra Yates

Native Key Wester Debra Yates is well known for her abstract paintings, works on paper and murals, which are in many private collections and public venues. She incorporates metal or copper or tile into her two-dimensional work, which leads her naturally to create sculpture. She writes, “My [work] creates movement through the use of colors and shapes.” Noted artist A.D. Tinkham writes, “The strength of Yates’s work is the compositional balance achieved through a strong sense of the weight of color and shape.”
