Welcome to DebraDorgan.com.
I'm Debra, the designer and creator of AllThingsPretty, online since 2005.
My home is in Brisbane, tropical Queensland,
Australia. I am originally from England, UK, with interesting roots. New Zealand was my first move overseas, several years ago.
I am a free-spirited soul and enthusiastic collector of vintage and antique textiles - being my faves. Antique lace and old global embroideries started my passion for textiles.
Over the years I have worked in several mediums including hairdressing, glass fusing, metals, wire, clay, paper and painting, to name a few! At present, I am designing and making clothes, jewellery and homewares from a combination of some of the above mediums.
My studio overlooks a beautiful creek where cockatoos screech throughout the day, keeping me company, alongside many other manner of Australian wildlife, my family, cutest pet Whippet dogs and two funny rescue cat sisters.
