Deborah Santoro is an artist, curator and writer. Before coming to UMass Lowell, she curated for eight years at the Owen Smith Shuman Gallery of the Groton Public Library in Groton, Mass. Trained at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design and Wellesley College as a visual artist with a concentration in painting, her current artistic practice consists primarily of printmaking without a press. Her work explores themes of addiction, loss and hope, crossing geographic and artistic boundaries to create pieces that engender universal themes. A palpable, visceral sense of the presence of a human hand is integral to her work.

Deborah has curated emerging and professional art exhibits for 10 years, and writes about art and artists on a regular basis.
