The artist Debbie Boon is a British born painter whose work focuses principally on capturing animals in a her own distinctive style. She paints professionally nowadays, having worked previously as an illustrator for children's books.
Working on canvas, Boon uses heavy bodied acrylics and glazes, working quickly at the initial stage to block in the main elements of the composition. Then she applies layers of paint to create texture, and an energy and vibrancy which reflects the ‘joie de vivre’ she feels when faced with a subject that captures her imagination.
Her work graces the walls of numerous boutique hotels, including Michael Caine's signature restaurant in the Royal Clarence Hotel in Exeter. Her limited edition signed prints are collectible and affordable, and her original paintings are now very highly sought after. Each print is superbly mounted and limited to an edition size of just 250.
