Deborah is a Devon based artist specialising in animal and pet portraits, working predominantly in pastels. Her portraits are produced on simple backgrounds accentuating detail therefore emphasising the animals characteristics. Her compositions are usually off set and profiled portraying the animals inquisitive nature to the viewer. She initially underpaints blocks of colour to create the shadow and composition then meticulously overpaints layers of detail bringing the portrait to life.
Her work is influenced by her lifetime love of animals and her surroundings. Living on the small family farm tending her rare breed flock of sheep constantly inspires her work and her passion for rare and endangered animals.
