Welcome to my colorful world of Fabric Decollage!

I'm Debbie Jones, from Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Fabric Decollage is an original technique that's a cross between collage and decoupage, created by bonding many fabrics together in layers. Almost every kind of fabric can be found in these decollages, including commercially available and hand-painted pieces, ranging from cottons and silks to ultrasuede and metallics. 

Sometimes I start with a single piece of fabric that inspires me and then build a collage around it. More often, I start with a color scheme in mind and then choose various fabrics, cutting them in a free-form manner and building the layers as I go, envisioning landscapes or underwater seascapes or even perhaps a "dreamscape".  Each decollage is one-of-a-kind.

Once the fabrics are glued in layers, the finished artwork is then placed in a large press that applies high pressure and heat to flatten and bond it to a sturdy, acid-free surface. The result is two-dimensional artwork that resembles a painting -- a "fabric painting"!  Most of them are matted and framed, although they can be quilted rather than being mounted and framed. This is a unique way of working with fabric that I've developed over the past fifteen years, after injuries from an auto accident left me unable to machine quilt for a long time.

Please take a look around to see examples of this distinctive art form and let me know if you're interested in purchasing my work or commissioning me for a custom design. Your comments would be most welcome.

Thanks for stopping by my website -- I hope you enjoy your visit!

Classes in Albuquerque & Santa Fe!
November and December class dates have been set at Southwest Decoratives in Albuquerque, where I'll teach Angels, Cards, Ornaments, Jewelry & Landscapes, and at Santa Fe Quilting in Santa Fe, where I'll teach Ornaments, Landscapes & Butterfly Garden Wallhanging.  Click here for all the details about these fun classes where you can make one-of-a-kind projects in just one day! (They make great holiday gifts!)



Holiday Arts & Crafts Shows
I'll be exhibiting my gift-priced fabric art and crafts at three holiday shows in Albuquerque:

Sat., Nov. 9:  Cleveland's 33rd Annual Arts & Crafts Bazaar
Sat., Nov. 22:  Sandia Band Booster's Fall Craft Fair
Sat., Dec. 6:  Monte Vista Mercado

Click here and scroll down for details about the shows.

Free admission and free parking.

What can be better than getting one-of-a-kind holiday gifts while helping to raise money for these schools (through artist/crafters' booth fees), and also supporting local artisans!
