Natalie Deane

I am an artist creating paintings, prints and drawings. Domestic animals are my subject, they unveil themselves, at one within their environment. I am interested in how farming, and sheep particularly, create the distinctive landscapes we often take for granted. My vigorous and impressionistic oil paintings use the influence of place and colour and are frequently inspired by farms based in Cheshire, Yorkshire and the Wirral. Initial drawings are produced as part of the process, they then translate in to screen prints that have a contemporary feel.
