Deborah Cumming is an Edinburgh based artist, beginning her art and design studies as a mature student in Chicago and then New York. On returning to Scotland she studied graphic design at Edinburgh’s Telford College, which formed the basis of her professional career working in the design industry for a number of years. During this period she gained a Masters degree in design from Glasgow School of Art.


Her career in teaching began at Napier University, Edinburgh and then Gray’s School of Art in Aberdeen. She secured a fully funded PhD studentship from Gray’s School of Art in design, which she completed in 2007.


In 2010 Deborah reluctantly gave up her post at Gray’s School of Art to focus fully on her own artistic development in painting. Her love of oil painting, using traditional techniques and glazes began with landscape and then still life where she has developed a particular style. Combining an inherent feel for design along with a love of the beauty in nature, her pared down still life paintings offer a new twist to an old theme.


Deborah’s work has been exhibited throughout the UK and in private collections in Europe, Canada and USA.
