Deborah Ajia


London-born artist Deborah Ajia has been creating art for the last 20 years. Dabbling in digital processes and traditional methods, her work reflects the multifaceted aspects of black womanhood, simplistic beauty and daydreaming. Her recent work has touched on nature and the fragility of flora and fauna. She is also heavily influenced by fantasy imagery and Japanese animation. 

Fostering togetherness and collaboration between different communities and generations is important to Deborah. She is an avid volunteer at South London Cares and Incredible Edible. She believes in the power of sharing stories and intergenerational learning, which can become even more rewarding when play, art and experimentation are added into the mix. She is thrilled to be part of the Pen Pals Connected project, and can't wait to collaborate with the chosen artists, to experiment and discuss accessibility in the art world and beyond.
