Leah is a Fine Art graduate from Bath Spa University and an active member of Bath Artist Printmakers. Her practice involves working with traditional print techniques in new ways, pushing the boundaries of an otherwise conventional medium. Through these means of visual realisation she explores a set of interests based on the everyday, locality and place attachment.
Leah’s work stems from a love of drawing, which she finds to be the most direct means of response and expression. She works with printmaking techniques to translate her initial observations, often incorporating experimental elements such as found materials and alternative techniques. She is interested in taking her medium further than its tradition and conventions.
Leah’s work for Hide and Seek realises the children’s game through linoprint, looking at the amusing interaction between children and objects.
Leah is also working on an ongoing project ‘Postcards to Locals’. This stems from an interest in the way people connect with different environments and each other.
