Debbie Lawrence is a Brighton based painter
She fell in love with the city whilst on her Art foundation.She then went on to do a degree in multi media textiles at Loughborough Uni.
An experimental textile course where she could focus on her love of drawing. For many years Debbie enjoyed a successful freelance career in textiles , fashion & interiors, working on many creative projects before fulfilling an ambition to be a painter.
Her artistic process often begins with sketching, she takes a sketchbook everywhere with her. Ideas are then taken into her studio where images are bought to life with her skilful use of colour.
“Each painting is like a puzzle to solve.I build up the canvass with many layers of acrylic paint A journey of memories through colour, marks and experiences"
"The excitement comes when an unexpected narrative appears in the work ,when I am lost in flow making marks subconsciously, everything else floats away.
I like to listen to audio books whilst I paint, each painting will remind me of a book I've been listening to.I like to start a new collection with a reading list as well as a bunch of sketches”
