Degard (born London 1966) is a British painter and installation artist. Degard is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, graduate of The Royal College of Art with a doctorate in Fine Art.

Life and Work Degard had no artistic experience and claims to have had an experience where she was turned into an artist in 1990 in Dingle Bay, Ireland. Prior to this she attended Edinburgh University (1985-9) where she studied politics taught by Peter Drucker. She attended Chelsea School of Art, London (1992-7) and The Royal College of Art (2018-9).

Degard was identified with other young artists of her generation such as Damien Hirst and Tracy Emin by Joshua Compston. Her desire to have a drug free lifestyle was a guiding force, Compston later dying of a drug overdose. Her work was distinct from theirs in the strong hopeful, colourful and psychic influences shared by Hilma af Kilnt, Georgiana Houghton and Susan Hiller. Her ideology is drawn from psi and emergent scientific influences including Carlos Castaneda, Edgar Cayce, Douglas Hofstadter and Dean Radin.

Degard has been involved in developing the genre of Contemporary Visionary in Art. Degard's work is included in public and private collections including the Royal family in Oman. Degard does charitable work for the homeless, The Big Issue and in mental health, Anxiety UK. Degard is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts and committee member of The Colour Group.
