"The process of being creative & the appreciation of creativity in others is, in my opinion, one of life’s great joys. I have been interested in Art of various types for as long as I can remember, and have inherited a passion for making things. My work is mainly in textiles & mixed media, focusing on line & texture."
Deb Cooper is a mixed media textile artist and maker from the Northeast of England.
Drawn to natural forms, & the beautiful way nature and time ages things. Line, flow & texture, always return as the main themes within her work.
Considering the impact of waste and over production Deb regularly uses recycled fibres, found objects and vintage textiles to extend their use. Many of the repurposed fibres have also been dyed with plant materials and rusty objects, often found, or grown on her allotment giving her work a subtle colour pallet. Deb is a proud member of the Society for Embroidered Works (S.E.W.) who promote that “Stitched Art is Art”.
