Deborah Bird

Festival: 2022

Original abstract art and limited edition silk scarves.

I am particularly interested in the unusual and accidental qualities of watercolour and abstract composition.

Inspiration comes directly from the landscape. The impact of our changing climate is another ongoing research portfolio.

Current work, explores themes of transition using the medium of flowing wet watercolour and photography. My approach to watercolour painting is experimental, pushing the medium to its limits, celebrating the translucency, watermarks and granulation effects.

I am a member of Leicester Society of Artists and have completed international residencies in Grand Canyon National Park (2012) and Crater Lake, Oregon 2014.
