Deborah is a self-taught artist (always experimenting and learning, author, and teacher. She currently resides Lewisville, Texas – a suburb of Dallas; yet has lived in 11 different states! Her art quilts and fiber collage works have been published in books and magazines, and exhibited all over the world. She has written and published several books and exhibit catalogs and she is currently serving as Vice President of Studio Art Quilters Association (SAQA).
Most of her art quilts are created by collaging fabric and stitching into layers of design. She incorporates all kinds of fabrics into her work from worn-out jeans to vintage linens to original fabrics created with paint, pens, stencils and stamps. Incorporating improvisational hand embroidery adds more interest and creates tiny details that enhance the piece as a whole.
Her artwork incorporates personal symbols like houses, leaves, stones, bowls, ladders and handwriting. She often adds hand embroidery to her art quilts while sitting in her grandmother’s old rocking chair. When she is making art, her heart beats faster and she feels joyful.
