Debbie Baxter studied at St Albans School of Art and grew up surrounded by nature and nourished by her mother, the well- known and respected wild life artist, Daphne Baxter's love of painting. She also studied under Daniel Samuels an international artist who painted exceptional Greek mythological pieces and more recently the artist Christiane Kubrick, widow of film director, Stanley.
As a consequence of being the daughter of an artist Debbie has always painted taking inspiration from the natural world around her.
It was her fascination with nature and the early influences on her creativity that have encouraged and steered her towards the very individual perspectives of nature that are manifested in her highly stylised work.
"I continue to have a special interest in trees and am constantly fascinated by their majesty of shape and design. I lived for 8 years in Indonesia where colour is striking and vivid and it taught me never to be afraid of the wide variety of hues nature has to offer."
Artwork and illustrations by contemporary UK artist, Richard Berner. Taking influence from the Surrealists and elements of Pop, Berner's work allows viewers a glimpse into his strange imagination, inviting them to see everyday things in a different way. Popular work includes the 'Beasts of Brighton' collection, a series of intricately drawn pieces inspired by the people and places of Brighton. More recent work explores iconic film and music themes, using bold colour and expressive paint splashes.
