Debbie Ma, American, born in the Philippines of Chinese descent, is a graduate of Parsons School of Design (New York). She is both graphic artist and fine artist whose designs have successfully graced products of major cosmetic companies. She has worked in New York City for many years and her studio specialized in packaging design.

She has painted all her life and has used her extensive experience in graphic design in her paintings. She currently lives and works on the North Shore East End of Long Island.
Her large abstract paintings explore the complex multidimensionality of geometric forms, in a monochromatic palette and texture. She creates a tapestry of quiet patterns that exude expressiveness through the application of a palpapble matrix of marble dust and pigments. Her paintings are visual two-dimensional sculptures.
