Deborah Maguire is an illustrator and writer, working from her small studio in the Irish countryside.

Originally from Dublin, Deborah studied in the field of Psychology, obtaining her PhD in the subject,whilst working in both the therapeutic and academic parts of the field. She ran her own specialistconsultancy service, working in educational settings with many families, and also worked atUniversity level, teaching and supervising trainees in the field. Deborah went on to train as a yogateacher, and delved further into the topic of meditation and mindfulness. All of these threadsheavily influence her work today.

What’s in the story, though? How does the story develop authenticity? More to the point, how does such a story create that trusting feeling that customers crave?

In 2016, Deborah, her husband, young son and two golden retrievers made a “big” move...

.... and left their home to start life in the countryside. They found a special spot on the Meath / Cavan border, inneed of a lot of love, but surrounded by trees, and hills, and all the magic that nature has to offer…where they started the next chapter of their lives. This brand new phase brought with it a change incareer direction, and an opportunity to dip her toe back into the creative world of writing, handlettering, and drawing. Childhood passions were reignited, and so began a new path…
