My name is Debbie Yare and I’m a Visual Artist based in north-west England. Spending time outdoors and developing my awareness of the landscape is an essential part of my work and life. I pursue this through an ongoing cycle of walking, exploration and art making, often visiting the same locations again and again. I have come to know the landscape that surrounds my home on Morecambe Bay intimately, yet each visit is unique and offers something new. My walks in these familiar surrounds are strongly felt, meaningful experiences that contribute to a constantly evolving ‘sense of place’. This could be described as a mingling of the physical appearance of a landscape; with history, memories and stories; and the inexplicable emotions that certain places bring which linger in the mind and create a sense of belonging.

Whilst walking in the landscape I respond to my experiences directly by making photographs and drawings. From these initial explorations I continue to make paintings in the studio, adopting a more carefully considered approach. I’d like to convey the intensity of feeling of these lived experiences, whilst maintaining a commitment to painting the landscape and the physical characteristics that make each place unique.
