Debbie Martinez

Debbie Martinez is an Indiana artist that layers textile, inks, beads, objects and threads to create realistic images that convey impressions of nature and tells a story. Her works have been called fiber art or art quilting. Texture and color lure people in and now they are inspired to give quilting a try.

Debbie's textiles show her passion for the all the arts. Her work has been exhibited internationally and throughout the United States. In addition to her one-of-a-kind creations, she spends her time teaching, hosting retreats and doing commission work.

Her attention to detail is what sets her apart from the average quilter especially when it comes to thread painting. Her specialty is thread painting animals, people and scenes which look more realistic than the actual photograph she used as inspiration. The long arm is her favorite machine and she pushes it to its limits and creates new and exciting techniques. She has many new and exciting programs for the new owner and potential buyers.

When Debbie teaches the art of quilting, her goal is to challenge the students to think outside the box and to push themselves. Debbie has taught long arm quilting at International Pacific Quilt Festival in California and at Baby Lock’s annual convention.

Just like her email address {sewfamous2002@aol.com} she truly is SEWFAMOUS!
