Debbie is the previous owner of the Gallery. Daisy worked with Debbie for many years before taking over as the new owner in May 2023, leaving Debbie more time to paint and travel!
As an artist Debbie is self-taught, benefitting enormously from the encouragement and advice of her father and professional artist, Peter Rowland.
‘My paintings are predominantly landscapes influenced by the surrounding countryside and a love of the East Anglian coastline. For me the starting point always comes from the immediate landscape and a desire to translate this onto paper as quickly as possible to capture the seasonal mood, and because if I'm honest, I'm also an impatient artist. I try to bring a sense of place to my paintings without being overly specific as my work is ‘representational’ or ‘semi abstract’, my impression of the landscape around me. Ultimately my aim is to paint pure atmosphere in my finished piece.’
