About the Artist
Debbie Barbarita’s digital artwork is inspired by botanical elements and scenes of nature. Her beautiful designs are dedicated to her younger sister (whom she refers to as the “artist in the family”) Paula Perfetti, who sadly passed away in January 2016.
After her sister’s death, Debbie decided to start drawing again, something she hadn’t done in years, as a way to ensure Paula would not be forgotten. Along the way, Debbie rediscovered her love of drawing flowers, animals and vegetables and using her drawings on various items (note cards, flour sack towels, baby items, invitations...to name a few) for others to enjoy. She hopes to 'leave her mark' in Paula’s honor.
About Our Name
The name "bebe blu" evolved organically, thanks in large part to Debbie’s grandson, Michael. Years ago, as he learned to speak, Michael tried to say the name Debbie, but it came out "Bebe." It seemed fitting, and so instead of grandma, she became known as Bebe. This, combined with her love of periwinkle blue, provided the inspiration for bebe blu designs.
