Deborah works in an instinctive and spontaneous way often combining and layering various media such as print, drawing and painting. 'I find the creative atmosphere at Glyndebourne so uplifting and I am inspired by the visual magic and reverie that is created on stage. The shifting sets constantly revealing and obscuring, from ghostly presences to the intensity of colour and pattern created from lighting, the stage sets and the wonderful costumes and characters, but also the silent spaces in between and after the performances'
In 2017 Deborah was Artist in Residence at the Grange Festival, exhibiting work inspired by the derelict and atmospheric mansion and the opera and previously was Artist in Residence at the historic Watt's Gallery which culminated in a one-man show in their newly restored gallery. Deborah has a degree in Fine Art and a certificate in Printmaking. She has won many awards such as from the Royal Institute of Watercolour, Pallant House, and Farnham Fine Arts Society. She has exhibited in various regional and London galleries including The Lightbox in Woking, Moncrieff-Bray Gallery in Petworth, The Grange, Pallant House and the National Open Art in Chichester, Mall Galleries, The Royal College of Art and the Royal Watercolour Society in London.
