Coming Up Next

JENNY O'LEARY.  ‘Landscape, batik and lockdown.’

Jenny O’Leary is an artist and tutor living in Shropshire. Her specialism is batik - hot wax resist, which she uses on tissue paper, and occasionally on cloth and paper too. Her inspiration comes from her local landscape, and this has been particularly true during lockdown when she has produced many pieces of work and sketchbooks to record her daily walks and occasional drives out in the local area. Jenny uses other forms of resist in her work and also uses stitch to add an extra drawn element to her work.
