About the Artist

Deborah Brown b.1927

Northern Irish sculptor Deborah Brown developed a connection with the natural world during her childhood in Antrim which has had an ongoing effect on her artistic practice. Now best known for her pioneering work with fibreglass in the 1960s, Brown initially studied landscape painting before moving to Paris and becoming involved in the abstract art movement. She moved from abstraction to figuration in the early 1980s and has since then gained much recognition for her public sculptures.
