My Practice

Using a wonderful synthesis of hand-crafted materials, I create intricate constructed textile pieces inspired by Scotland’s Coastal Landscape and Birdlife. Textiles for me have always been an important element of my artistic expression and how I interpret the coastal landscape

Tools & Materials

The methods I use in my work stems back to my Art School days reflecting my training in printed textiles. However, in a much less technical way, I like the process now to be much more spontaneous using quite simply printing techniques like mono, lino and gelli printing. I work onto organza and gauze to give me the option to layer fabrics and create depth of colour and pattern.

Recent Developments

My decision this year is to focus on creating a collection of textile art inspired by my experiences of coastal birds. My plan is to create an A to Z of coastal birds through textiles. I’ve also been very fortunate to win a commission for the RSPB to create a Biodiversity Textile Banner for the UN Climate Change Conference in November.

SF2021 Activity

I will be launching some new online workshops on my website where you can learn some of the techniques that I use in my textile art.

My work can be viewed and purchased from the SF Pop-Up Shop, the SF Online Gallery and through my online shop.

Connect with Deborah

Our online studio pages give you a chance to learn about each artist, see their work, watch video tours and demos and connect with them online. You can also purchase work, either directly from the artist or on the Spring Fling shop.

Enjoy!
