July Speaker DEBBIE ALLEY - Fiber Artist
Debbie Alley is a local fiber artist who specializes in fine art images made from plant material using the eco-printing process. She offers a line of fine art originals, and prints, as well as a line of eco-printed and hand-painted silks. Her art is organic and intriguing and often described as calming and meditative.
Debbie has a long history with fiber arts. She learned to experiment and embrace creativity and push the boundaries with design from her grandmother. She continues to strive for that in her art today. Debbie enjoys combining her experience with silk painting, quilt design, fabric dyeing, eco-printing, and watercolor into her art to create something unique and interesting.
Debbie will share her process for creating her eco-prints and share examples of her work.
