Who is Deborah Boschert?
My name is Deborah Boschert and I’m an artist. (Self-taught. Always experimenting and learning.) I live in Lewisville, Texas — a suburb of Dallas.
My art quilts and fiber collages have been published in books and magazines and exhibited all over the world. I believe everyone has a creative spirit and I love helping others explore that spirit. Sometimes I make a big mess when I’m creating. Sometimes it takes days to clean up. My favorite color combination is green and purple.
I’ve lived in Minnesota, Kansas, Nebraska, Illinois, Florida, Mississippi, California, Maine, Texas and Maryland. My artwork incorporates personal symbols like houses, leaves, stones, bowls, ladders and handwriting.
I love crossword puzzles and cracking codes. I don’t cut paper with my fabric scissors. (Usually.) If I want two things stuck together, I prefer to sew a seam. I’m not so good with the glue.
My middle name is Hope. I don’t like watermelon or mac and cheese. I love coffee, brownies, ice cream and tacos!
I often add hand embroidery to my art quilts while sitting in my grandmother’s old rocking chair.
I’m a list maker, but not necessarily a list follower.
I have a wonderfully fun and supportive family. My husband Jeff and I met when we were teenagers. We love sharing adventures with our kids, Claire and Benjamin.
It’s always a priviledge to share my artwork and ideas about creating art. I teach workshops online, in videos, through webinars — and even in real life! When I’m making art, my heart beats faster and I feel joyful.
