Who is Debbie Langsam?
”Circuitous” describes Debbie Langsam's path to art. The colors, shapes, and textures of fungal spores led her to a doctorate in botany from Duke University and a faculty position at UNC-Charlotte. After twenty-two years, however, her attraction to the visual and tactile took a different turn…this time in the direction of textiles.
Debbie's work uses traditional and non-traditional quilting techniques and materials to create original fiber art pieces that play with color, texture and light. A native New Yorker, her childhood roots and background often appear in pieces that celebrate the urban experience and in quilts that explore Judaic themes.
