About the work
Deborah Eastwood, 2016
Acrylic on canvas

The hell of the Family Court, facing domestic violence agencies, mistruths and CYFS - but she will walk through hell to face the future.
The Angel Series depicts messengers appearing in their glory to offer caution, courage and fearless devotion to those they protect as they approach, face, and eventually overcome the most intense of life’s struggles.
About the artist
Textile Designer and Artist Deborah Eastwood has been creating and designing for over 20 years. Born in the UK and New Zealand resident since 2007, she holds a degree in BA(hons) Textile Design and is also a qualified teacher.
“My love of art and textiles is paramount to the work I produce - it gives me joy. I gain my inspiration for my art through the world around me. The form and pattern of the natural world, the symmetry and design of the living world never cease to astound, inspire and amaze me. Everything I create is original and bespoke in form due to the way in which I work.”
“I’m supporting No Shame No Silence because I want to show the harm and strength that comes from experiencing abuse, but also the challenge and trauma of the system”.
