Deborah Bowness, artist, designer and maker grew up in Yorkshire and has been designing, making and exhibiting wallpaper since 1999. Today she lives and works in St Leonards-on-Sea, on the South Coast of England. Here Deborah has set up a print room, printing wallpapers and dispatching them to clients across the world.
Graduating from Leeds College of Art & Design in 1997 with a BA(Hons) in surface pattern and textile design, Deborah went on to the Royal College of Art in 1999, where she obtained an MA(rca) in constructed textiles. It was at the RCA where Deborah began to challenge preconceived notions of wallpaper and wallpapering. By giving her art everyday use she introduced a new and different perspective on the material.
Deborah has produced an extensive range of individual, non-repeat wallpaper designs. These began with her graduation installation of ‘Hooks & Frocks’ which incorporates photographs of hanging dresses, montaged together and then machine printed at life-size onto drops of wallpaper. The monochrome images are brought to life by adding silkscreened color and hand painted detail, creating a homage to trompe l’oeil and deliberately shunning the repeat pattern. Deborah’s intention is for her work to interact quietly and playfully with objects and furniture, but not dominate the surrounding environment.
