My father, Paul Deacon, is an artist in my home town of Malmesbury. In January 2014 we joined forces to produce 'Sketch', a 2 week exhibition of sketch book pages, swatches and observational drawings, displayed in Malmesbury Town Hall's John Bowen Gallery. Paul's sketches were compiled over several years in many different locations - from the Sea of Cortez to the East coast of Scotland. My work was exclusively produced while living in Trinidad and Tobago over the past 3 years, including super-quick watercolours of carnival characters, and pastel-finished paintings produced during travels in the rainforests of French Guiana.
I am a keen artist in my spare time. I currently run a natural history art group within the TTFNC.
