Debby works and teaches her art in the heart of Bristol.
She creates wall images, sculpture, jewellery, prints and cards alongside lecturing and teaching.
Her work is often inspired by nature and explores local atmospheres and memories often using layers and textures.
She uses stitch, batik and beautiful painted papers and fabrics to create wall images. She also works on a miniature scale using wool and silk often encrusted with stitch and beads to make wearable art brooches.
In addition to her drawing and applied art, Debby has several years jewellery training and uses silver and enamelling. Her love of textiles is evident, introducing lace patterns onto the silver and stitch like processes into the work.
Debby exhibits regularly around the South West and has recently shown work in the Toll House Gallery, Clevedon, Somerset, Grant Bradley Gallery, Bedminster, Bristol, Cove Gallery, Weymouth and has several community pieces in schools and health centres, Cheltenham, Dudley and Bristol.
She is an exhibitor and tutor at Bristols’ new textile design workshops “Heartspace Studios”. Take a look at all the varied mixed media and textile workshops on offer at the web site www.heartspacestudios.co.uk
