Deborah Lanyon

Deborah Lanyon lives in South London and studied at St Martin's College of Art and Byam Shaw College of Art. Obsessed with painting from an early age, Lanyon believes in the importance of drawing and compositional techniques, which are a strong feature of her work. Influenced by Roger Hilton, Patrick Heron, Ben Nicholson, De Kooning and Pollock, her painting is deeply concerned with structure, tension, expression and mark making. Working in quick drying acrylic, Lanyon works rapidly and physically with canvases positioned on the floor.

A frequent traveller, landscape remains a vital source of inspiration to Lanyon although her recent paintings are more defined by her inner being than the external landscape.
