I was intrigued to find out how she creates her beautiful thread work and the processes she goes through. As you can probably imagine a lot of research goes into each installation. Photographs are taken and sketches prepared. The final sketches are projected onto the space before she begins adding pins and thread to reconstruct the scene. The process is painstaking and meticulous and the result is stunning. Images jump off the wall, bringing characters and landscapes to life.
In the following video Debbie talks about the exhibition and her work.
