Debbie Goldsmith

Debbie Goldsmith is an artist based in Cheshire. Born in 1969, in Manchester. She studied at Coventry Polytechnic Fine Art and at Salford Technical College.

Debbie’s work is vibrant, abstract and full of energy. Her current work explores her immediate surroundings: the landscape of Cheshire and daily walks provide inspiration for developing drawings. These are taken back to the studio and influence experimental processes in drawing and printmaking. Eventually this develops into large-scale, expressionist, abstract paintings.

She is currently exploring using wool to create large-scale, textured artworks which are as comfortable hung on the wall as the floor. The vibrant pieces form ariel views of landscapes, where the viewer is invited to walk around and on top of to experience the textures and tactile surfaces of the fibres.

Since graduating with a BA hons degree in Fine Art in 1991 from Coventry University, she has exhibited extensively in London, Brazil, Manchester, Chester and Hastings. She exhibited for many years at the Wendy Levy Gallery in Mancester.
