Penny Lewis
Community Visual Artist


I am based in Leeds. 

My work is inspired by the outdoors, the natural and the man made world. I explore colour, texture and movement through drawing, painting and felt-making. My work is produced through sketching, photography and experimentation, working up to a finished piece.

I work with a variety of community groups and schools, specialising in drawing and painting, textiles and diverse craft techniques. I have experience and expertise working with adults and children with learning disabilities, pre - school, key stage one and two children in school, family learning groups and older people. 

I believe that exploring topics and issues through creativity enhances thinking skills and learning, builds confidence and self-esteem, improves communication and decision making, inspires the imagination, provides conectivity to different aspects of the world and... sends everyone home with a buzz.

Inclusivity is of paramount importance to me and I am proficient at differentiating tasks and skills to ensure everyone is engaged.
