I am Deborah Ann Graham a Fine Artist, Computer Game Artist, Yoga Teacher and a Yoga Student living and working in the North West of England.
I now live and work in Bollington in Cheshire, but was educated in Carlisle. Where I attended the Cumbria Collage of Art and Design on an Art Foundation Course, from there going on to the then Trent Polytechnic, Nottingham to do a BA(hon) Degree in Fine Art, which I graduated from in 1987.
Drawing and painting as response, meditation, self-enquiry and as healing; my work is always personal but seeks to connect. Looking for something recognised and recognisable not in terms of literal meaning or content but something that may be on some level, understood.
I allow image, line, colour and form to arise, automatic drawing, flow of conciseness, instinctual use of colour and mark. Sometimes struggling to step aside and let images happen resulting in canvases that expose the fluctuations of the mind.
Over the many years I have practiced as a fine artist, my work has sought subject from myth and architype, through landscape and natural forms. Now the subjects are less evident but echoes of a built visual vocabulary still surface.
