Although she often starts with a point of enquiry and research prior to beginning works, space is always allowed for spontaneous and intuitive gestural marks to play alongside more deliberate symbolic elements which form part of her growing visual vocabulary. External influences frequently collide with psychological explorations to become internal landscapes on Deborah's chosen medium - a type of visual poetry which abstract art lends itself to beautifully.

"I love the variety of marks that can be achieved and the visceral effect it evokes. Conveying the energy and emotional response to my muse is always paramount in my practice."
