I am a pioneering British ‘Painter of Auras’ and a contemporary Visionary artist. I am the curator, and founder of the genre Contemporary Visionary and The Visionary Brit Museum.

I see auras, sees traces of people and animals. I can intuit through her art spirit portraits of those people who are long gone… “It all started when I ‘saw’ a blue square around the chest of a man who I discovered had just had triple by-pass surgery. I suddenly understood what these flashes of light were; they were his Aura, his conscious energy. The square indicated surgical human impact, the colour blue- healing – I could see the experience of the whole operation in his energies.”

Visionary Art discusses notions beyond scientific understanding such as life and consciousness and political notions which need redefining. As an artistic practice the visionary in art also critiques the barrenness, bleakness of post-modernist art.

I highlight the value of Contemporary Visionary art at The Visionary Brit Museum www.visionarybritmuseum.co.uk

The Visionary Brit Museum is a Red heritage telephone box outside of the British Museum which hosts Visionary art exhibitions exclusively. We receive up to 3000 visitors per week on and offline (often more!) who take photos of the work inside the Vis Brit weekly.

I am doing a Doctorate in Fine Art on the Visionary in Art at the University of East London.

Molly Hackney, writer of The Medium’s Medium (written for an exhibition at Frieze, London 2019) says of Degard’s latest exhibition, The Power of Things, Drip: Still Lifes https://my.matterport.com/show/?m=HgyLejEty25

‘The canvases at Drip enchant the viewer with this glimpse into spirit connection. It is her choice of objects that give this exhibition such magnetism.’
