This was said about me and I really like it.
EssexDebs had her roots in the Thames until she was transplanted to Eastside in 2008.She traded a career in pediatric nursing for volunteer guide role at Bellevue Arts Museum. This change enabled the time and opportunity to explore, create and enjoy fibers to a new level.
Deb has a genetic link to crafts. She can trace her family roots back to glove-makers in the 1800’s through to ivory cutters at the turn of the 1900’s.Until arriving in the US she described herself as a by the pattern crafter who has now broken the mold.
An awareness of environmental issues are a component of my work. I use recycled materials, deconstruction and reconstruction to build complex layers of meaning to express a variety of themes.
