[bonbon: {french}; sweet, a little candy, something good // oiseau (wazoe) {french}; bird]

{the bonbon oiseau workshop} is me Deborah Stein. I'm an art maker, illustrator, adornment-er, experience-er and teacher of all of the above. I like to think and converse and discover new things, not always in that order.

Bonbon Oiseau Workshop has been my brainchild and my design muse since 2004, but after 14 amazing years, I transformed my jewelry and design studio to my first love, painting and illustration. I started making artworks again after a long hiatus in 2014 with an installation for my friend's showroom in Paris. Then in the summer of 2015 I went to New Mexico with the sole purpose to start making art again and never looked back.

Since then, my husband, lighting designer James Knudsen and I got ourselves a house in the mountains of Northern New Mexico and now we split our time between NM and NYC. Look out for art and creativity workshops and retreats in New Mexico in 2019!
