Deb Brandon, Textile Arists/Author

Deb Brandon’s career is an eclectic one to say the least. Born in England, raised there, Israel and Switzerland, she lives in Pittsburgh and is a math professor at Carnegie Mellon University, which is where she earned her PhD. Deb’s a respected textile artist whose book, “Threads Around the World” describes how artisans from 25 diverse cultures create traditional fiber arts using centuries old methods. Deb is also a brain injury survivor who underwent 3 surgeries in as many weeks. She kept a diary, which eventually evolved into a book: “But My Brain Had Other Ideas: A Memoir or Recovery from Brain Surgery.” We cover a lot of ground in this open, honest, life affirming conversation.
