Eco Printing on Textiles
Join us to hear Debbie Alley share her journey as a textile artist, a look into the art of eco-printing and how the process works, and samples of her work.
Debbie is a fiber artist living in Knoxville, Tennessee. Her passion for painting and eco-printing on silk and paper moves her to experiment with color and texture and she finds that her favorite place to create is where nature, science, and artistic expression come together.
Debbie fell in love with fiber arts as a young girl while learning to sew under the artistic eye of my grandmother. She learned to experiment and embrace creativity and push the boundaries with design. She spent many hours selecting fabrics and patterns and putting them together for a design that was unique and beautiful.
Her former creative textile endeavors have included silk painting, quilt design and construction, longarm machine quilting, fabric dyeing, eco-printing, mixed media collage, watercolor, and simple bookbinding. She has professional experience in HR with a focus on digital content development, graphic design, and marketing.
Debbie recently launched her Lifestyle Textiles Collection of beautiful 100% Kona Cotton eco printed and hand dyed. This is the first step in the expansion of her brand into the home interior space and will be including her textile designs for art for home decor.
Her work can be found at:
- The District Gallery in Knoxville, Tennessee
- Artisan Woodworking and Design Gallery, Knoxville, Tennessee
Debbie is a member of the Silk Painters International, Tennessee Artists Association, The Interior Design Society.
