Deirdre Blackburn

An experimental artist who loves to capture light and colour, using a variety of media. My paintings are inspired by my surroundings which are captured in a loose and free style. Some of my work is in an abstract style which allows me to experiment with texture, shape and moods.

I will also be taking part in an exhibition with 16 other artists – raising funds for the Big Life Foundation;

Big Life was founded in September 2010 by photographer Nick Brandt, conservationist Richard Bonham and entrepreneur Tom Hill to address the dramatic escalation of poaching in East Africa. Since its inception, Big Life has expanded to employ hundreds of local Maasai rangers -with permanent outposts, tent-based field units, patrol vehicles, tracker dogs and planes for aerial surveillance. As a result Big Life has dramatically reduced poaching of all wildlife in the Amboseli-Tsavo-Kilimanjaro ecosystem. #To learn more visit the website at big
