Debby Tenquist’s passion for textiles ignited early. The motifs in her designs are drawn from many spheres. Whilst studying decorative arts in the UK the ancient worlds of the Mughal and Ottoman Empires, Imperial China and Japan had the most inﬂuence. Working more recently as a garden designer the timeless beauty of the natural world continue to inspire her creative process. As with all her designs the historical and botanical lexicon is edited with a modern sense of scale and colour sensibility.
