Debra Priestly speaks about her mixed-media work, which incorporates painting, digital imagery, installation, and assemblage to explore themes of memory, cultural heritage, and the transmission of ancestral knowledge.
A recent series of Priestly's works, "Preserves," presented family photos and images of historical people and events (including a flag-draped victim of 9/11) within the suggestive framework of her grandmother's Mason jars.

Her work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the June Kelly Gallery in New York (1994, 1996, and 1999), the Columbus Museum of Art (1990), and the Print Studio at the City Gallery in Wellington, New Zealand (1989), and also has been included in numerous group exhibitions in the U.S. and abroad. Priestly received her B.F.A. at Ohio State.
