Deborah is the founder of 360 Xochi Quetzal. She sends out newsletters, writes all our marketing copy, manages Twitter, organizes the personal residency program and handles all the myriad aspects of running an international residency program. In addition to running the residency program, Deborah is an internationally exhibiting artist.
