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!

Quilts and a Pillow
I've finally finished quilting a couple of wallhangings that have been around for a long time -- better late than never!

Visit the new Pillows Page to see the back side and close-ups of both sides, along with step-by-step instructions for making a pillow in this style.
