Self-Portrait, 2020, acrylic on paper

Central to Digby’s art is the expression and arousal of emotion.

He works on portraits, still lifes and landscapes. He also has a series titled I Don’t Know What Came Over Me, a whimsical and poignant take on the theme of what it is to be human.

He works with acrylic paint, mostly on canvas board, and pen and ink on paper. He also produces mixed media prints.

Digby is self-taught. He became a professional artist in 2021. His art has been showcased by online journals and published extensively in collaboration with writers of fiction and poetry.

Before becoming an artist, he worked as a writer for many years.

He is based in Hove on the south coast of England.
