DeborahSuzanne - Contemporary Artist, Photographer and Ethical Taxidermist.

'I am a paragraph, a description in a story. What I visually describe is how the story evolves.'

After a productive career as an event and portrait photographer, I have recently graduated from Colchester School of Art where I received a First Class BA (HONS) Degree in Fine Art. I am now continuing to study for my MA in Fine Art at Anglia Ruskin in Cambridge.

My Personal practice continues with my photography work in a Fine Art Context exploring memory and human connections. I am interested in the philosophical theory of Phenomenology and Inspired by Renaissance and Baroque art.

 

I am fascinated by the number three, which I incorporate into my works using narratives to traverse the realms of rituals, myths and religions, as well as the subject of death-positivity. 

My current practice involves using appropriated objects, photography, sculpture, ink drawings, assemblage, video and performance. I have discovered a love of rogue taxidermy. All animal parts used in my sculptures and photography are by-products obtained from road kill, accidental or natural deaths and all feathers are sourced in accordance with the Wildlife and Countryside Act, 1981.

I am a Scavenger, Humanist and LGBTQIAPK Advocate.
