Leanne Vaughan-Philipps MA
I am a multi-media, mixed disciplinary artist living and working in the Swansea valley.
I have been lucky enough to raise my family here in Godre'rgraig surrounded by stunning scenery,
wildlife and a wealth of cultural history.
My home is sited between the mountains and the sea. With the Brecon Beacons, numerous castles, waterfalls, lakes, parks, and the Gower peninsular just on the doorstep, I am never short of
places to explore.
My art practice is very varied. With a mixed background of Illustration and Fine Art I enjoy the
freedom to be creative in whatever medium I feel works best.
I am also a collector. I always look out for unnoticed details in things, meaning that other people's junk tends to be my treasure. I adore the signs of ageing that are to be found all around us and I am intrigued by the hidden narratives that can be drawn out from everyday objects.
My interest in art process had led to experiments with various grounds and manipulation of colour and light in order to create atmosphere.
I am a qualified lecturer, art curator as well a community artist.
