The Beestonian is: Debra Urbacz – Creative Enthusiast and Editor
If you’ve ever found a butterfly folded from a bus ticket or receipt, the chances are it was probably made by Debra.
Partly because she likes to spread joy and partly because she’s like some ‘uber-efficient hippy’ who loves to make people smile and who can’t actually sit still unless she’s sewing, doing origami and writing all at the same time with a glass of wine in hand. Debra came to Beeston to study but now supports creative people and bridges the gap between artful procrastination and showcasing local talent. She joined the Beestonian team eighteen months ago and this is mainly what she writes about.
