Deborah is an Ohio native (via five U.S. states and Germany) living life artfully and happily in Minnesota. With a passion for creating art, Deborah’s disciplines include—but are not limited to—painting, drawing, photography, knitting, and spinning fiber (not bicycle wheels). Her current focus is fiber art, whether knitting garments, manipulating fiber into handspun yarn, or felting projects. The changing light, color, and texture of a landscape in oils on canvas and her attention to detail in pencil or pen and ink on paper combine when Deborah works with wool and wool-blend fiber. Her lifelong love of art and learning are fuel to share her skills by teaching others to be fearless creators. In the process of teaching Deborah always learns from her students. Deborah’s paintings, drawings, and photographs are in private collections throughout the United States and Germany and has published project articles in Spin-Off Magazine (Interweave Press) and a design in 60 Quick Knits from America’s Yarn Shops (Soho Publishing). She teaches knitting at Amazing Threads and at Anoka Fiber Works.
So, how do I get my name on the list?
