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 twenty 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!

Check out this Silk Fusion Vessel
made with silk hankies

Click here to see more Silk Fusion Vessels

This vessel in shades of dark teal 
was made with eight silk hankies, 
which are the very thin, gossamer layers 
of silk that come from a cocoon. 
They actually look like hankies.
At night, the multi-colored fairy lights 
make the vessel appear to be many different colors!
Here are two new 
Silk Fusion Vases featuring fabric
along with fibers that are permanently 
bonded to glass vases.

(This technique is demonstrated in the
Silk Fusion Vessels Class.)
