Born in Manchester in 1967, Deb Jones has maintained her passion for animals and creativity. Having completed a B'Ed in Design Technology, she taught art and design for a number of years, whilst maintaining her own drawing portfolio.
Her empathy for the animal kingdom also overlapped into the caring profession and she is also a trained mental health nurse.
"Using the creative arts as an outlet to promote and maintain mental health, has been a valuable tool - for my own self expression and that of the people I interact with".
Deb now works closely with charity organisations to help raise funds, donating 20% from commission and print work to them.
"I'm what you would term an "Empath Artist" - I aim to capture not only the likeness of the animal but also the character."
I feel it is important that when you see your portrait not only can you recognise your animal but also "feel the connection" of their character and personality.
"I also specialise in "Over the Rainbow bridge" portraits, helping you to connect with animals that have passed and bringing comfort in seeing their image immortalised for years to come."
