Debby Topliff creates large-scale paintings based on her in-depth study of whole books of the Bible. Her unique talent for teaching takes you on a visual journey through the painting that leads to a rich understanding of the story.
So far she has completed Mark, Acts, the Life of Abraham, and Revelation—which is the basis of a 45-minute video called “Painting Revelation”. She is currently working through scenes from the Gospel of John.
