ABOUT THE ARTIST
Debbie Flack has lived in South Devon since 1968, where she attended Torquay Girlís Grammar School and South Devon Art College at The South Devon Technical College, subsequently attending Dartington College of Arts where she developed her interest in textiles; her main focus having previously been in painting.
After achieving the Dartington Diploma of Art in Education and a subsequent certificate of Education from Rolle College she set up in business producing a range of designer fashions in hand dyed fabrics, mainly cottons. These she marketed at Craft Fairs across the country, County Shows and Festivals, and also at key outlets, particularly Otterton Mill from itís early days, and Quayside Crafts. From 1985 - 1990 she had a retail workshop in the co-operatively run Wheel Craft Workshops at Chudleigh, and from 1990-1995 ran a small shop in Totnes.
During these years she had begun to develop the range of silk accessories, and eventually ceased production of the designer fashions in order to concentrate on developing the current range. In 2006 she returned to her original artistic motivation, painting with a fascination for historic images: www.lostlandscapesrecreated.co.uk
