Debbie Boon was born in 1960 and graduated from Loughborough College of Art in 1980 to begin her creative professional career. Debbie has illustrated some well-loved childrens books, and worked as a graphic designer.
Debbies art concentrates mainly on wildlife and field paintings in a signature, stylised way. The East of England countryside, where Debbie is based, features often in her work. She aims to capture the striking, and often quirky characters of English rural life, as well as its breath-taking landscape. In her work, youll see horses, rabbits, and dogs captured with energy, nobility and respect. Its easy to feel a sense of the personality of an animal when you see Debbies paintings. Her paintings use layers of colour and light to convey texture and movement. This gives an expression to her paintings that always stops you in your tracks. She likes to work with heavy acrylic paints and a variety of glazes. Her original paintings are highly sought-after, gracing the walls of numerous boutique hotels and restaurants. Talking about her aims with her art, Debbie said. I aim to reflect life and all its visual personality.
