DEBORAH STRONG
AFCA

silk companion animals
Throughout her life, Deborah has never been without animal companions - the horses, dogs, cats who have been with her through thick and thin. Her own animals, as well as those she meets along the way, provide inspirational subjects for colourful silk paintings that capture their lively personalities. Would you like to see your own dog, cat or horse in a silk painting? Custom orders are welcome!

A Girl and Her Dog

Best Friends
Hand-painted silk; Image size: 12"x12"

As with humans, sometimes cats form a strong bond with one another, defying the common perception that they are solitary beings. These two cats, who came from a shelter, were not siblings but became just as close.
