NEW TO ART ROUNDHAY PARK

JANIS GOODMAN

Janis is a Leeds based printmaker, working out of her studio in Leeds learning printmaking at Leeds College of Art in the 1990s. Janis is particularly attracted to the process of etching as every work is individually made; inked and hand-printed from a metal plate using a heavy iron etching press.

Her prints focus on the relationships between the natural and urban worlds. She loves pattern but also finds great interest in the ways in which the repetition is interrupted. Her pictures are small narratives in which different elements meet and interact.

LARA BYNG

Lara Byng is a local artist, born and raised in Roundhay, Leeds. After studying Fine Art at Harrogate College and Leeds Metropolitan University, she moved to America with her husband. After returning to live in Roundhay, she now combines her life-long passion for painting, with her firm belief in the healing power of nature.

Lara paints in mixed medium, predominantly using watercolour, acrylic, and ink to create depth and mood. She has sold paintings across Europe and North America and earlier this year exhibited at Woodhorn Museum in Northumberland. Lara is thrilled to be a part of the Art Roundhay Park installation, as Roundhay Park has provided her with inspiration and many fond memories.

FUMI

Born in Tokyo, Japan, Fumi gained First Class BA (Hons) in Floristry from University of Hull in 2007, and a First Class BA (Hons) in Interdisciplinary Art & Design from University of Huddersfield in 2010.

Fumi has also exhibited as part of a group exhibition at The Mall Gallery London, Chelsea Old Town Hall London and Cupola Gallery Sheffield.

"My work is stimulated by transition of organic processes such as ephemeral forms and instability of colour in floral materials. I specifically preserve plant materials including petals, florets and leaves, then I present flowers as elements with which to build sculptural objects. A general characteristic of my work will fit the exhibition theme - Floral and Natural.
