Debbie Barrett-Jones' Profile
Since graduating from the Kansas City Art Institute with a B.F.A. in textiles, I have created Billy Sue Textiles.
Along with weaving large-scale commission pieces for sanctuaries, businesses, and the home, I develop new ideas on a smaller scale. Weaving scarves and shawls are like sketches; each one is a new composition. Color is where I find inspiration, and that is why I hand-dye each color in these pieces.
I consider each weaving a piece of art that is practical. I take every color, material and composition in consideration when I create not only something that you can use to keep warm, but also brighten up and enhance an outfit.
Each scarf and shawl is hand woven using hand dyed yarn that is all done by myself. No one piece is alike and is perfect for any one and any age…
