Debora was born in West Berlin, Germany in 1957. After finishing school, she studied music at the Berlin "Hochschule der Künste". For many years she taught singing and piano and gave many performances  in Germany, Israel, Hungary and France with a repertoire ranging from Bach to Berg.

After the birth of her daughter Arnina in 1988 she concentrated more in the field of art. The first solo exhibition of her “Graphical Artwork” was held in 1992.
She became a member of the group "Künstlergruppe Steglitz", where her teachers, Bernd Beck and Ebrahim Ehrari were already members. They held a joint exhibition at the "Freie Berliner Kunstausstellung" in Berlin.

She finally found her new expression and style with beautiful and colourful naive paintings, in which very often nude women pose, dance and jump.

In 2011 she became a member of the group of "Naive Artists" in Israel:

Debora has taught both children and adults in her studio "Kreativer Bypass" and has participated in many projects for charity including WIZO.

Nowadays she travels between Berlin and Tel-Aviv where, when not occupied with dancing the Argentinian Tango, she works in her studio.

One can find echoes of her music in her works of art. She works mainly on  the principle of  improvisation, using the spectrum of fine art to produce works which resonate with sound while being full of intense light and colour. Debora works on canvas, paper and wood.

In her poyptichons Debora Gutman is combining figurative and abstract images with unencumbered ease. Her artworks depict scenes of human experience, animals and objects, that while fragmental and seemingly unconnected, the imagery creates a cohesive mosaic, that stimulate all kinds of fantasies, inviting viewers to imagine their own stories.
Gutman uses wood as the basic material, combined with a very bright, colorful and shining palette, her paintings have a mediterranean athmospere, that invites you to relax, to allow your soul to take flight in her colorful and rich imagery and unique sense of humour.
