Deborah Last: Artist
Deborah Last is an artist working from her studio in North Devon. She works directly from life and from memory to create light filled work.
Throughout 2015 Deborah explored the landscape in oils, capturing the light and weather of the changing seasons. Her contemporary style, expressive colour and intriguing brush strokes blend with a traditional form of art to create a unique and beautiful series of paintings. Undertaking daily painting has further informed Debs’ understanding of the landscape and the year long research project of daily painting has hugely informed her current practice.
In 2013 Deborah produced the installation piece ‘Upper Room’ which combines sound, body printing and anatomical drawing. It is a work exploring and examining body image, self-worth and faith.
Having spent 7 years living in India working as an artist and tutor, her work retains the love of colour and story that so inspired her whilst she was there.
Her work is held in private collections throughout the UK and abroad, including Sir Richard FitzHerbert of Tissington Hall, Derbyshire and the estate of Sir Jack Hayward, Barbados.
Deborah works full time as an artist, living in North Devon. She will be embarking on further studies as she joins the MA course at Plymouth Uni in September 2017.
Together with her fellow artist and friend Zoë Day she jointly owned Buckingham Art School until December 2016.
She is a Patron and a founding member of Buckingham Art for All.
