Deborah Pendell CV



I am a self taught photographer and have been a photographer for over a decade.


Arcangel Images

For many years, I created fine art conceptual photographic imagery for the book cover market, building a large portfolio of creative digital artwork with my agent Arcangel Images, known globally for providing high-end artwork to the publishing industry.  Working within this industry allowed me to grow creatively and be experimental with my photography and my digital work.  My digital artwork has sold all over the world and continues to do so.  I have been a finalist in a global photography competition after which my photography was exhibited at the Mall Galleries and then did a tour of the UK over several months exhibiting in a number of locations.


Over the pandemic, I decided I wanted to change my direction as a photographer so that I could create digital artwork that was not constrained by the needs of the book cover market but where I could express myself freely and creatively by making limited edition art.  This has been a fantastic journey for me, branching out into a range of photographic and digital genres.  My artworks are both photographic and mixed digital media reflecting my love of colour, mood and metaphor.  I especially enjoy working with images of street art and graffiti, giving an urban edge to some of my work.  My art also has a more delicate side where I work with painterly textures and floral imagery.  I am enjoying the lack of constraint in my new venture.  My website is where you can see my collections of limited edition giclee prints on archival papers.  My artworks are signed and numbered and come with a Certificate of Authenticity.


Morgan-Davies Art and the Affordable Art Fair

Six months after starting my journey into the art world, I became represented by Morgan-Davies Art, a London art dealer and consultancy and online gallery for some of my collections and now sell through this consultancy and the Affordable Art Fair.  In December 2021, Will Ramsay, the Affordable Art Fair founder, selected one of my artworks as one of two of his picks of the Affordable Art Fair Christmas market.  My artwork has frequently been selected by the international Affordable Art Fairs to be featured on their social media channels like Instagram and the newsletter. My Instagram feed for my artworks @deborahpendell_limitededitions shows some of these.


My limited edition artwork is now held in collections both in the UK and overseas and I have experience of safely packaging artwork for overseas customers.


I have exhibited at Art Fair East, Contemporary Art Fairs and Roy’s Art Fair at the Truman Brewery. I am also exhibiting at the New Artist Fair at the Truman Brewery in September. 


As I am relatively new to the art world, I am working on gaining more art exhibition opportunities and have one in the pipeline in Cambridge.
