Deborah CroftsBiography: Abstract figurative paintings inspired by a mixture of environmental concerns. Consciously choosing opposing methods and drawing on a vocabulary of hard edged graphics and painterly brush strokes, the work makes bold statements whilst also embracing colour. "I have always felt in great awe of the natural world. The expression of this holds a child-like quality and excitement. The changing of the sky, lightening storms, the crashing waves, woodlands and breathtaking landscapes have all enthused and influenced me. There are definite undercurrents of global concern present in what I do but my main motivation is ambivalent feelings about the future in the face of a changing world." The majority are acrylics but on occasion include other mediums such as gloss paints, oil pastels and pencil. Currently based in Folkestone in the Creative Quarter.
