About Deborah Murphy

In my present work I use many different weaves and textures of silk fabrics.I dye the fabric myself, cut it apart, and then sew it back together.Sometimes I wash, shrink, or felt the fabrics, and then over-dye them, sometimes multiple times ,to achieve the desired effect.I also print my drawings and poems on fabric by scanning them into the computer and printing directly on the silk.I use embroidery and beading as a final embellishment.
