Jenny Wakely : Patterns of Creation
In December we had a fantastic exhibition of print making from Jenny Wakely. Jenny took up Printmaking when she retired, first at Embrace Arts, then at Leicester Print Workshop. As a scientist by training Jenny enjoys the technical aspects of printing whilst as an artist she appreciates the variety of possibilities it offers to suit different subjects.
” My work reflects the variety of shapes and patterns to be found in the natural world all around us, and celebrates the amazing creative power of God.”
Jenny works with a wide variety of printing techniques and the exhibition included mono prints, linocuts, photolithography and letterpress prints. The results are beautiful, intricate and eyecatching. Examples of Jenny’s work can be seen at the picture framers Maynard & Bradley in the Lanes of Leicester. (At the corner of Silver Street and the Royal Arcade)
Jenny very generously offered us a mono-printing workshop and we had a lot of fun creating beautiful and delicate prints of the few remaining Autumn leaves we could find! Thanks Jenny.
