born in dundee, debbie lawson graduated from the royal college of art and central saint martins in london, where she currently lives and works. made using chicken wire and masking tape, her sculptures fuse the domestic landscape with the animal and plant world, resulting in life-size, persian rug art pieces. one of her most popular works, the 2.5-meter-tall red bear, was recently part of the royal academy of arts summer exhibition, curated by artist greyson perry, while the persian moose is permanently on show in london’s town hall hotel. other works include hybrids in the shapes of foxes, seagulls, plants and pieces of fruit, merged with traditional carpets in various colors.
