Deborah Fallas is a painter originally from Aberdeen but now based in Galashiels. She came to study at the Scottish College of Textiles in the late eighties, and apart from a short break, have been here ever since. Deborah has always painted as a hobby but in the past five years or so, it has become something more and more important to her. She paints in acrylics and loves the bright, vivid colours you can achieve with the medium. She also loves that there is no limit to what you can produce with just a brush and tube of paint and very little else.
Recently Deborah has been working on a looser, more relaxed style and concentrating on vibrant flower studies. She loves bright colours and playing about with different hues and colour combinations that really “sing” when they are put together.
