Debi Oulu wears a small pendent around her neck that says “Do art.” Asked why, she says, “I’m free. I wake up in the morning and I say ‘What am I going to do today?’ And this is my motto. Maybe I got it from Nike’s ‘Just do it,’ but it’s mine. It tells me to do it. To do art. To not overthink it too much. This is sort of my daily kick in the butt, which tells me to do art.”

Oulu began doing art almost 20 years ago – with an intense, all-consuming dedication – and has never looked back. Her latest expression of her inner drive to “do art” is an upcoming exhibition in Jaffa called “Penetration.”
