Deborah received a first class honours degree in Fine Art from De Montfort University in 1985 and went on to full time painting. She was elected a member of the Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours (RI) in 2011 and went on to be elected to the RI Council in 2014.
In April 2016 she founded fRIends of the RI and later that year was also elected an Associate Member of the Royal Society of Marine Artists, (ARSMA).
Painting from her gallery in Hamstall Ridware, Deborah’s watercolours are landscape based with an emphasis on painting water. She embraces both representational and abstract elements in her work and she pushes the character of the paint to its extremes.
A revered artist, Deborah was awarded the Turner Medal in 2015 and her paintings feature in many private collections throughout the UK, Japan, Germany, France, New Zealand, Australia and Finland.
The Harbour Gallery is delighted to work with Deborah, representing most of her Cornish works.
