Esther Deans

Esther Deans 

Esther is a self-taught painter, who grew up surrounded by art. She learnt much of her craft from her Grandfather, the landscape painter Austen Deans, and uncles Lindsay Crooks (figure painter) and Paul Deans (sculptor).  Her formal degree (a BA) was in English and philosophy, and her love of literature informs much of her sensibility and her approach to visual arts.

In 2014 she was awarded Highly Commended in the Adam Portrait Awards, and has had a number of portrait commissions since then.
