A country childhood fostered a great passion for animals. Deborah’s love of horses and dogs in particular, shows greatly in the skilful and sensitive portraits she creates. Having spent a large part of her life working with Thoroughbreds and Arabians on studs, in training yards and as a racing journalist and photographer, her anatomical knowledge and personal experience beautifully support the character and personality that she captures with each piece.
Working from life, her initial sketches, studies and reference photographs are reinterpreted in her studio and all pieces are cast and hand finished in Britain. With a lifetime's experience around animals, her hands-on knowledge shows through in every piece she produces. We are delighted to include her work here at the gallery.
Deborah Burt's work is exhibited as far a field as Turkmenistan and she is a former Chairwoman of the Society of Equestrian Artists.
