Life without Art and color would be exhaustingly dull.
Debbie Taylor-Smith has been experimenting with various mediums for more than 40 years…Watercolor, Pen and Ink, Mono-printing, Mosaic and Collage were among the early favorites. Today she prefers to focus on the ‘Functional Arts’ of Flamework Beadmaking for her jewelry and hand painted silk scarves. Her silk scarves use the Japanese techniques of Arashi Shibori and Suminagashi while her unique glass beads are coordinated with her scarves to give her total control over the overall color and format.
