About Deborah Chou

I am intrigued by the eccentricities found in every intersection of life. The awkward beauty in nature’s hiccups makes me smile. Quirky elements often find their way into my work. I am happiest when immersed in the design or creation process… or when eating chocolate and watching cartoons.
