Yellow Flowers II is a cheerful, bold contemporary Still Life Flower painting that will brighten up any room. Painted in thick, textured acrylic paint Deborah has painted a distilled version of a primrose plant in bright yellow with a shocking pink background. Deborah takes her inspiration from some of the great still life painters, the flattened picture frames of Henri Matisse to the bold and simple paintings of William Scott. Deborah says "I love the feeling of peace and homeliness that still life paintings give to a room, there is nothing more calming and joyful than a colourful pot plant or a bunch of fresh flowers in a vase". This painting is simple and uncluttered and would look as good hanging in a traditional home as a very modern one, to quote Leonardo da Vinci "Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication".
Deborah Windsor, painter and printmaker, is available for sale online and in our art gallery at Wychwood Art. Deborah grew up in the Kent countryside surrounded by animals and nature and started painting with her mother who was a portrait painter at a very young age.
After art college Deborah co-founded a ran a successful ceramic design business in Portobello Road, London, designing, making and selling contemporary ceramics and undertaking commissions for well know media clients.
Moving back to Kent in her thirties Deborah taught art and returning to painting, her first love, developed her still-life painting style.
Deborah works in oil and acrylics building up her paintings with layers and washes to achieve depth and richness. Pattern, texture, decoration, shapes and colour are all important elements in her work.
Working from life is vital to Deborah so that she can capture the essence of her subject. Jugs and vases spill over with fresh flowers and she will often paint part of one of her abstract paintings in the background to add an extra element to the composition. Deborah’s work features vintage china and fabrics from her collections which with her mainly gentle colour palette give her work a homely, peaceful feeling.
Deborah now lives with her husband Vincent and their ginger cat in part of a converted Victorian workhouse, her studio is in the old bakery. To discuss any of Deborah Windsor's works for sale please call 07799535765 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
