Genevieve Leavold

b.1980, UK. Multidisciplinary 2D artist, originally trained in theatre design. My work is continually evolving though it is grounded in a love of drawing, influenced by the explorative practice of Mira Schendel and the philosophy of Wittgenstein.

I have exhibited extensively throughout the UK. I have work in private collections in the UK, US and Europe.
