Debra Sparrow’s beautiful weavings are based on the ancient traditions of the Coast Salish. As an artist and researcher, Debra creates wearable ceremonial art in the form of blankets, robes and dresses and also designs clothing with a Coast Salish texture and pattern that is fashionable and contemporary. Her commissions are found around North America including in many museums, galleries, and private collections. Most recently, Debra was commissioned to create two wearable blankets for the UBC Faculty of Education’s 75th anniversary.
