There are two distinct areas to my work - colour illustration mainly of architectural subject matter, using paint, collage and digital printing techniques, and figurative drawing in charcoal and pencil.
Sculpture in stone, wood and metal. Looking for the unseen within materials, while exploring stillness, symbolism and, possibly, creating space for reflection.
Influences: Brancusi; Frederick Franck; my yoga and movement practice; Cornwall; standing stones; spirit; materials and textures; dawn; water; Japan; the Unknown
"I work from the unknown, from the material, from the inside........"
Known for her acrylics on canvass, Leanne Winter is inspired by colour and and South Bristol urban areas. She is in artists residence at the Glasnost restaurant in Totterdown and regularly exhibits at Bristol art events.
Inspired by the simplicity and shape of everyday objects and places,
I like to use three colours to accentuate line and stimulate the viewer.
The use of satin paint adds to the unambiguous image, creating a painting
that can be enjoyed in any living or working environment.
My collection, Sunday Best 2007, is the result of a journey of exploration, learning and discovery. The garments have been designed and made by myself, for the most part over the last five years. The collection displays my interest in corsetry, drapery and experimental cut, onto which I have expressed a desire for beading and embellishment. I like to think the wearer feels a sense of fun and pride when wearing my clothes and corsages too.
