A full-time artist, weaver, and teacher Deborah discovered weaving in 1996, when her life-long love of fiber, texture, and color came together. Prior to 2005, Deborah devoted her talents to creating wearable art, weaving hundreds of garments and accessories for sale and exhibition across the country.
At that time she increased the scope of her work to include non-functional art including large-scale wall pieces and liturgical banners. In addition to commissioned work installed in various places around California, her pieces appear in many national and international exhibits, winning numerous awards. When not at the loom, Deborah enjoys writing about weaving or teaching fiber and weaving classes.
Since 2004, Deborah has been an Artist-in-Residence, teacher, and weaver at Studio Channel Islands Art Center in Camarillo, CA, where she was instrumental in developing the Fiber Arts Studio.
