Artist Statement

“I have always been drawn to the figure and the portrait. A love of people and an eternal fascination and celebration of all the colours of human nature continue to be a stimulus for my work. Shifting weather and light in our landscape has moved me from a very young age and plays a part in my work. Using elements of landscape throughout the portrait as an emotional tool assists my exploration of state of mind, or the way of being that is present at the time.
Primarily, I use art as a means to understand myself and to process thoughts and feelings. This can sometimes involve recognizing emotions or ideas, acknowledging them visually, accepting them and letting go in a meditative and magical process.”

Deirdre also produces high quality fine art commissions for private clients and business through-out Scotland on a large and a small scale. If you would like to discuss a potential bespoke commission with Deirdre contact her by email to arrange a no-obligation meeting to discuss your needs.
