Deborah is a Visual Artist.
Much of her work relates to ideas about the natural world, and Man's connection. Deborah expresses fundamental human experiences, feelings and ideas.
She is interested in the relationship and interaction between the artist, artwork, site and audience.
"I work in a site specific manner, responding to places, spaces, people and situations to develop meaningful exciting work. Engendering meaning and experience in work is important to me, as creator and for the viewer".
Underpinning all her work as each piece progresses, is excitement; in exploring ideas and aesthetic visual expression, in her sense when the work 'feels right', and in the skillful tactile element with varying materials.
Deborah uses a variety of mediums and art forms, as seems appropriate to each separate piece; she works with glass and light, digital photography, built sculpture in natural materials with organic form, paper and book arts, and mixed media. With recent world travel, she is increasingly interested in the local, traditional and distinctive. Beach sand micro photography is an ongoing exploration. Material and process can be as important as the finished work. Experiencing transitory and ephemeral art can be of essence, and solid and permanent work has a different quality. All are important considerations.
"I find a new conscious understanding, through images and words that begin as unconscious responses; initially intangible, often ephemeral, it is their gradual realisation on paper, screen, or making in a solid medium that creates personal awareness. In turn, my work is for other people."
