Artist Leanne Kelly has fond memories of making “pysanky” wax-resist dyed eggs with her family. Each egg takes patience, time and a steady hand. After hours of working layers of wax and dye, inevitably someone would drop their raw egg. Tears and laughter would follow. These broken eggshells are a reminder of how delicate our brains can be.
This brain is dedicated to Kelly’s family, and their struggle through Alzheimer’s, brain injury and a brain tumour.
Leanne Kelly is not someone who is restricted by a single job title. She works in art direction, production, packaging, printing, planning, installation and creative support for retail and event design.
Kelly works closely with event designers and small business owners to come up with and develop visual ideas and concepts, then designs and makes them. This can involve the transformation of retail or event space, the production of a custom piece, or the design of a production plan for a larger project.
