Deborah Murphy, Wearables

Los Osos, California

Deborah’s present work uses many different weaves and textures of silk fabrics. She dyes the fabric herself, cuts it apart, and then sews it back together. Sometimes she may wash, shrink, or felt the fabrics, and then over-dye them, sometimes multiple times, to achieve the desired effect. Deborah uses embroidery and beading as a final embellishment.
