Deborah McHugh is a Geelong based artist and weaver working with found, recycled and waste materials. Her work is influenced by a childhood on a farm and a familiar history of making and crafting. She has developed her studio practice exploring the traditional craft of hand weaving framed within the context of contemporary art. Deborah’s individual language of textiles is expressed through observation, repetition, pattern, intuition, tactility and sustainability.
Deborah completed an Associated Diploma of Arts (studio textiles) at Melbourne Institute of Textiles (RMIT) and currently undertaking a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Creative Arts) at Deakin University.
