Norfolk based Artist, working and exhibiting Internationally 

Kirsty O'leary-Leeson; Artist

I am an emerging artist who graduated from Norwich University College of the Arts June 2011, with a first class degree in Fine Art. I have been a finalist in the International Saatchi Drawing Showdown, have exhibited across the Uk and also appeared in the BBC 2 Programme 'Show Me the Monet'. Visual Art Trader wrote of my work: "The senses of emotional uncertainty, of time evaporating and of forgotten memories in Kirsty's drawings are made all the more powerful by the beautiful and precise execution of the images." www.kirstyoleary.com

Fundraising for myeloma

In mid July My darling mum, Jenny woods was diagnosed with an incurable cancer called myeloma, although she was immediately started on chemotherapy to try and slow the disease and give her some more time, the cancer was too aggressive and she passed away in the early hours of the 18th August, my brother and I were with her.
Earlier this year I was commissioned by the national lottery to do 4 drawings for an olympic themed colouring book that was given to Team GB athletes in Rio.
To raise money for Myeloma UK  I am selling the 20 copies of the colouring book that were given to me by the lottery, I am asking people to donate to www.myeloma.org.uk
Please donate directly to myeloma UK and in the ‘other details’ box please put my name and that I am fundraising via olympic colouring books, as they can then keep a running total for me.
Any size of donation is vital be it pennies or pounds, let me know if you donated and everyone will go into a draw to receive one of 20 copies.
Email me at kolearyleeson@btinternet.com
You can also visit this website www.myeloma.org.uk to find out more about this rarer type of cancer.
I am also hoping to find a way to contact athletes in Rio to send me their copies either coloured in or signed so that I can arrange an auction to raise more funds. Check out this page again soon to see if I have any luck in achieving this.
