Debo Hysack studied music, printmaking, graphic design and political science before graduating from the University of Minnesota. As a textile and surface design artist, she has explored painting, printing, marbling and fabric manipulation for quilts and small structures. Large works depicting insect images and musical themes are in private collections in Omaha and Minnesota. As a SAQA member, Hysack has exhibited in online galleries, juried shows and regional exhibitions. She has had numerous items published in Quilting Arts and Cloth Paper Scissors magazines and has taught textile surface design and marbling online for private students and at Joslyn Museum.
Below are her thoughts on the creation of her trio of works.
Technicolor Tree Rings
Some trees take on the patina of age and art in their slices.
Commercial fabric pieced, appliqued and quilted with variegated thread.
Today’s windmills perform an air ballet as you drive through the countryside.
Hand-dyed, hand-painted fabric and cheesecloth; commercial fabric and straws; hand- and machine-stitched with variegated thread.
With Two Sticks You Get Fire
Fatwood sticks make a good fire with kindling and paper.
Commercial over-dyed fabric, painted rice cloth appliqued and quilted with variegated thread.
