JEANNIE OLWYN CLARK
Observed sketches inform all of my work, these are then adapted by imagination, accidental events and marks, and the occasional photograph. I paint in oils on canvas, gouache on paper, acrylic on paper and canvas, and editions of collagraphs combined with lithography.
Much of my current work focuses on water, light, sound, dream and movement ("swimmers" collection). Other works draw inspiration from everyday encounters, with ongoing themes of journeys, coast, rock pools, woodland views, and landscapes, interiors, clothes, carnival and theatrical events.
I am a member of Leicester Print Workshop and part time teacher, with 40 years of teaching experience in drawing, printmaking, and painting. I recently have had the pleasure of working in the community for the Lady Bay Art festival in Nottingham running printmaking workshops for children. I also work for the WEA, and have experience of teaching at level 3, HND, and degree level.
Print work is on sale at Leicester Print Workshop.
