About my artwork
Currently, Leanne is developing a range of work that conveys nonsensical themes, often playing upon narratives from iconic children’s literature and sinister morality tales of the Brothers Grimm.

The work frequently contains notions that play upon feelings of escapism Leanne experienced as a child during reading and play and considered once again through her teaching experiences in early years settings, allowing her to reflect upon the world through the eyes of a child tinted with a slight sinister edge influenced by literature.

The underlying themes within the work create contradictory images between the realm of reality and the imagination, conveying the transitory nature of childhood by capturing those thoughts and moments which are so precious, yet fleeting all drawn from an adult’s perspective.

Additionally, Leanne is influenced by Sigmar Poke’s early works and the Pop Art movement. She therefore applies mid-20th Century inspired fabrics and adds her own twist by incorporating other more contemporary found objects. Amalgamating these processes with innovative stencilling methods juxtaposed with Leanne’s traditional stylized drawing produces her own identity within the works.

Principally, Leanne wishes to create a narrative of thematic tension conflicting between what is drawn by her hand and what is created aesthetically by using found materials.
Artists I like
Sigmar Polke, Peter Blake, David Hockney, Andy Warhol...

Thankyou for the friendship.  The trees take on human form, reaching out and in motion, as if they have some intention.   The arches and passageways seem to lead to some unknown and secret world.
