Deborah works from her studio in Sussex where she makes textiles and works on paper. Her garden is an extension of the studio where she grows and processes plants for natural dyeing.
Her practice engages deeply with the act of making, an exploration of materials and the natural world.
Her aesthetic – lo-fi, handmade, imperfect – evolves from her interest in age old craft techniques and the cross overs between art, design and craft.
Whether working with paper or cloth she explores colour relationships, placement and composition and the juxtaposition of materials and textures.
Deborah studied Visual Communication at Central St Martins and Textile Design at Chelsea College of Art. She exhibits her work in museums and galleries and runs workshops and courses for people of all ages and abilities.
