Debra Lunn and Michael Mrowka are partners in life and the creative team behind Robert Kaufman Fabrics Artisan Batiks. The two have been producing fabrics for almost 40 years.
Debra made her first quilt in 1963 and started hand-dyeing fabrics in 1976 while she was in graduate school for textile design at the University of Minnesota. When Debra and Michael met in 1991, he lent his expertise as a sculptor, painter, and printer. Together they created Lunn Fabrics. In 1994 they joined forces with Robert Kaufman and currently run the batik division of the company–called Artisan Batiks.
