Leigh Shepherd Designs
Leigh’s mixed media creations are made from vintage and natural finds, upcycling is a theme that runs through all of her work. The pieces in the Fern Collection are made from segments of typecase trays, these are filled with pressed fern fronds, paintings, prints and drawings. Resin is used to protect the fronds, create shadows, layers and depth. The pieces in the Bee Collection are created from all kinds of vintage boxes, trays and tins along with bobbins and shuttles from the mills in the Bradford and Skipton area (amongst other places). Leigh’s work has been exhibited throughout the UK.
