Esther Deans
Portraits and Still Life (Commissions available
Enquire Now )

Esther is interested in capturing an authentic fragment of a person's psychology or emotional state in a single image. In doing so, the painter has to use the external aspect of a person; their physiognomy or body language or expression, to convey their internal state. Painting buildings has become a sort of metaphor for this process - looking at a building and trying to imagine its internal life, the spaces and lives that exist, or have existed, within it, and the stories it might have to tell.

Esther spends half her week as an English and Social studies teacher, and half of it as a painter. She learnt much of her craft from her Grandfather, the landscape painter Austen Deans, and uncles Lindsay Crooks (figure painter) and Paul Deans (sculptor). In 2014 she was awarded Highly Commended in the Adam Portrait Awards, and has had a number of portrait commissions since then.
