Deborah started life in Devon, before moving to Staffordshire where she studied photography, followed by an apprenticeship as a film editor with the BBC in Manchester. She believes the greatest influence on her life was when her great-uncle George gave her an old Hasselblad Polaroid camera while she was at college with it she has won several awards for her work.
Her expertise as a photographer has enabled her to develop an unusual technique whereby a Polaroid image is transferred to watercolour paper or other media such as old letters or even raw plaster and wood. She frequently uses split background imagery with its balance of yin and yang to give greater depth to her work.
She is greatly influenced by the colours and shapes in the natural surroundings of gardens, and is passionate about travel particularly the Indian subcontinent with its vibrant and exotic colours. Cobbled lanes and pebble beaches now provide much of the inspiration behind her work since she returned to her Devonian roots.
Deborahs work has been widely exhibited over the past decade, including solo exhibitions at the Broome Street Gallery, the Photographic Gallery in New York and several local exhibitions during a year in France. Her images can also be found on cards, furnishing fabrics and even handbags!

We partner with the world's top museums and galleries to bring you exclusive prints of the highest quality. Our teams of designers ensure the colours are accurate, papers are well suited and the best frames are suggested.
In the printing room, artworks are printed on state-of-the-art machines with a team of technicians checking colour and quality every step of the way.
After being cut down to size, our team carefully finish any stray edges, check measurements and prepare the prints for mounting and framing.
We have a team of master framers who work with high-quality, responsibly-sourced wood to create our vast range of framing combinations - each frame is bespoke and made to order for every print.
Our selection of hand-finished frames are painted or stained by hand in a variety of colours, and finished with a layer of wax - the end result is a uniquely crafted, beautiful frame that is made to last.
In this workshop everything comes together - the print, the frame and the glass - in a seamless and stream-lined process.
The artwork is carefully mounted in preparation for framing.
Once mounted, the print is ready to be covered by glass or perspex - a delicate procedure but expertly done with not a fingerprint in sight.
After a final, thorough check, the framed print is ready to be carefully packaged up and shipped to the customer.
For those who order their art as canvas prints, the same amount of attention and care goes into the process. Here, the print is being transferred to a wooden frame.
As with the framed prints, our canvases are all hand-finished in the workshop - a labour of love from start to finish.
