About Me

My name is Deborah Cauchi, born in Sunderland in 1968, I returned to further education and graduated from the University of Sunderland in 2009 with a BA (Hons) in Fine Art. Since graduating I have exhibited and sold at numerous Art Fairs around the UK, including Edinburgh and Cheshire; had a solo show, won The Peoples Choice, national art competition in 2010, have been featured in international art publications, Artists magazine and Society of All Artists, on one occasion providing the image for the front cover and I currently have work in galleries around the UK.

My Work

I am a figurative artist who has a "healthy" obsession with Lego and vintage toys; inspiration comes from my own experiences relating to human emotions and memories of childhood. I like to take that long forgotten or much loved object and give it a moment in the spotlight. Paint is applied both figuratively and abstractly. Whilst all my paintings are representational, they are not limited to a particular style and the experimentation of the paint plays a major role in my art.
