Debra Eck

Eck is an internationally exhibited mixed media artist who works primarily with paper, thread and text whose work features a characteristic concern with repetition and the evidence of the maker’s hand. Her recent artist’s books have focused on the translation of traditional embroidery techniques into exposed spine bindings. Her functional books and journals use post-consumer recycled materials and fabric, creating practical beauty from rubbish. In addition to her studio practice, Eck teaches foundation studio classes and visual studies at Jamestown Community College, and classes and workshops for numerous other arts & cultural organizations both regionally and nationally. She received her MA in Visual Culture from Northumbria University in Newcastle, England and her BFA from the University at Buffalo, where she graduated as the Dean’s Medalist in Fine Arts.
