Digby Beaumont is an English artist. Much of his work is with portraiture, in which he looks to capture something of his subject’s inner world as well as a likeness. In 2021 he began a major mixed media series entitled, I Don’t Know What Came Over Me, a whimsical and poignant take on the theme of what it is to be human. Digby is self-taught. Before becoming an artist, he was a widely published writer.
