Deborah is currently completing the final year of a Ba Hons. degree in Art and Contemporary Practices. Born in Lanarkshire , she now lives in Inverness, in the Highlands of Scotland. Having lived in towns and villages on the fringes of cities throughout her life, Deborah's artwork focuses on bringing the benefits of nature to those who are unable to access natural settings. Her creative practice is informed by her love of the outdoors and as such she is interested in the positive connection nature has on our wellbeing.
Inspired by a background of delivering change and business transformation, through the introduction of emerging technology, Deborah's work focuses on how new age digital media can deepen our connection with the natural world in a way that transforms our thinking and in doing so improves both our own wellbeing and that of the planet.
Using creative practice to facilitate learning, she has worked on several educational projects with Inverness College and with the Highlife Highland Adult Literacies Programme. Collaborations with charities include working with the RSPB to create designs for a metal sculpture of a Red Kite nest for their Tollie reserve and Birchwood Highland, a mental health charity, to design and produce a large scale promotional textile banner.
