Penny Leaver Green

Penny Leaver Green is a contemporary textile artist based in Bristol.

Penny uses fabric and thread to explore contemporary thoughts and ideas. Her subject matter is varied; it is conversational rather than didactic, exploring the relationship between fabrics, design and words and thoughts. Fabric is her medium; she loves the enormous range in texture, pattern and colour and the infinite possibilities it affords. She often repurposes objects within her work to give them a new life and meaning, for example: she made a series of pieces which used fasteners (zips, buckles etc.) to comment on our relationship with our spines, and in another work she used a degraded antique fan painted with birds within a much larger image to explored migration.

Penny has exhibited nationally and internationally and undertakes public and private commissions.
