About Deborah Brown:
Deborah Brown is a Northern Irish sculptor. She is well known in Ireland for her pioneering exploration of the medium of fibre glass in the 1960s and has established herself as one of the country’s leading sculptors, achieving extensive international acclaim. She became fascinated with nature during childhood years spent in Cushendun in the Glens of Antrim (which inspired her Sheep on the Road sculpture). Living there during World War II, she studied landscape painting before moving to Paris, where she entered the abstract art movement flourishing there. Her works have ranged from fibre glass sculptures to swirling geometric portraits.
