The London based artist Deborah Azzopardi emerged from a background in commercial art, where her clients included household names such as Bovril, Bisto, and Disney. It was enjoyable but demanding work, and after a serious illness some years ago she decided to concentrate on painting subjects that really meant something to her, reasoning that ‘Life’s short, and if you do what you love then everything else will eventually fall into place’. Her mother was a fashion designer at Jaeger and Deborah believes that this is where much of her creativity derives from.
Deborah works in acrylic, usually on board or canvas, and claims that her sense of mischief and black humour inspires much of her subject matter. She has exhibited successfully throughout the United Kingdom over the last few years and has recently had several titles published by leading Fine Art Publisher Felix Rosenstiel’s Widow & Son.
In March 2014, the artist had her first solo UK exhibition of originals and limited editions on Cork Street, London and launched her debut book. The book ‘Sshh…’ showcases her work over the previous 10 years and features more than 100 images.
Deborah is married and has three children.
