Greetings! My name is Deborah C. Stearns. I live in Maryland, just outside of Washington, DC in the United States. I am a college professor (I teach psychology and women's/gender studies), but I also enjoy working with textiles and fibers, as well as embellishments of various kinds. I make wearables and items for use as well as purely ornamental pieces. I am also working in digital photography and I have been combining my photographs with textiles. I have trouble finding or making consistent studio time, though, and my practice has been in fits and starts, at best. I'm hoping to get past my various stumbling blocks to find a pathway to work in the studio more consistently.
