The Work Studio

Debra Dorgan


Welcome to

I'm Debra, the designer and creator of AllThingsPretty, online since 2005.

My home is in beautiful 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. 

I am currently back painting and creating, alongside working in the community as a Support Worker, with aim to help people integrate into their own local communities and incorporate appreciation of arts and crafts which can help enable people to find common ground, have fun and encourage new friendships and kindness. 

Love Debra
