Debo Groover

Debo Groover

Debo Groover was raised in Savannah, Georgia and received an MFA from the University of Georgia in ceramics. She has had a successful career as a potter and an itinerate teacher traveling throughout the United States. Although she is formally trained in ceramics, she is self-taught in the use of polymer clay. In both a fortuitous and naive exploration of this new material, she applied every technique she had learned in ceramics and subsequently broke every rule in polymer clay. This resulted in a brand new technique of using colorful and patterned sheets of clay like fabric collage. The clay itself is paper thin and tactile. When you look at each painting, the subject matter is clay and background is textured acrylic paint. She uses the paint and clay in such a way that the viewer has to closely engage with the work in order to distinguish between the two materials. Debo Groover’s work can be found in galleries in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, Mississippi, New Jersey, Tennessee and Virginia; in several private collections and in the LeBoneur Children’s Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.
