Debby often uses the sewing machine to “draw” into her mixed media work

Debby works  and  teaches her art in the heart of Bristol, United Kingdom.

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 solo and group shows in Bristol, Clevedon, Somerset, and further afar. Alchemy 198 was the location of her solo show and where she runs a supportive creative drop in group. She has worked as Artist in residence on several occasions has several community pieces in schools, museums and health centres.
