Meet the Artist - Deborah Bird

As part of Leicester Art Week, Members of Leicester Society of Artists  came to New Walk Museum on Saturday 19th November to talk to visitors about their work in the LSA Annual Exhibition 2019.

Artist Jarvis Brookfield

New Member Jarvis Brookfield brought in a selection of his sketchbooks full of flowing lines.  He demonstrated how he approached his drawing, and 'automatic' drawing.  Jarvis has joined the LSA as a new Member in 2019, after winning a place as Runner Up in the LSA Student Award 2019.

Artist Danielle Vaughan

Danielle Vaughan spread out her latest collages and papers.  She showed how she puts together her ripped paper collage works and uses recycled paper in her artworks.  Danielle runs courses on this technique, which is very much her own.
