Working with my hands is vital and nourishes my artistic soul.
Concepts develop from deep within my mind and are translated through cloth.  Colorful handmade textile art is what I am known for. I love discovery and prefer to work spontaneously; I never know what might spark a creative train of thought.  The results are fun and joyful.  Comments on my work mostly pertain to the colors and combinations I use.
I have two individual art focuses:
1-Contemporary designs-which include painted surfaces machine stitched and often include mixed media such as painted paper
2-Conservative designs developed primarily with hand stitching.  The look can range from contemporary to somewhat retro.

My goals are to produce the best art I can.  Most of what I create is available to purchase; however, this is not my primary focus.  I prefer to focus on the content and the end result; holding myself to a very high standard, personal levels that I have set.  The challenges I set for myself fuel my energies for juried exhibits which are important to me.  Over the last ten years my work has been accepted into numerous National and International exhibits; I am very proud of this. 
An art collector will respect the levels of accomplishment that I strive for. Anyone who loves color and dynamic designs will appreciate having my art hanging in their home or office.  Attractive, high energy, striking colors describe my work. 

Debbie is a full time professional artist. Her main body of artwork is exhibited in the galleries on her website.   A separate gallery-blog Zen Cloth presents hand stitched art cloth. She also offers Textile art courses online.

“Drive a nail home and clinch it so faithfully that you can wake up in the night and think of your work with satisfaction,- a work at which you would not be ashamed to invoke the Muse”
-Henry David Thoreau

In our case, it would be the needle or other fiber tool. Drive it home! And, we all thank you for your words, left here to these good folks. Invoke your Muse!
