Deborah grew up on a Lincolnshire farm surrounded by inspirational people and places. Training originally at Leeds Metropolitan University and Berkshire School of Art and Design, she has worked extensively as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. Her clients have included RHS, National Trust, Natural History Museum, Chatsworth House and Dunoon Mugs.

 

Whilst developing a range of paint-by-numbers kits, an interest in making art accessible to those without specific training grew. This led to the creation of ‘Make a Masterpiece’, translating beautiful landscapes and wildlife designs into easy to achieve guided painting and craft events for adults and children.

 

She currently lives and works in Reading as an Artist in Residence at a local school specialising in murals and running Art Clubs.
