Deborah Brown (born 1927 in Belfast, Northern Ireland) is a Northern Irish sculptor. She is well known in Ireland for her pioneering exploration of the medium of fibre glass in the 1960s and has established herself as one of the country’s leading sculptors, achieving extensive international acclaim. She became fascinated with nature during childhood years spent in Cushendun in the Glens of Antrim (which inspired her Sheep on the Road sculpture). Living there during World War II, she studied landscape painting before moving to Paris, where she entered the abstract art movement flourishing there. Her works have ranged from fibre glass sculptures to swirling geometric portraits.
Sheep on the Road (1991), Life-size bronze, originally commissioned by the Arts Council of Northern Ireland for their sculpture garden at Riddell Hall, Belfast. In 1999 it was purchased by Laganside Corporation, after relocation of the Arts Council of Northern Ireland, and relocated to the entrance to the Waterfront Hall, Lanyon Place, Belfast.
