Jeanette Orrell


I am interested in making things. I work in a fine art way but quite often use craft skills in my work. I am interested in the day to day, the otherwise ordinary. objects that have a bearing on me and my life. I have also worked extensively on landscape drawings, drawing and redrawing the views from my windows. I am really interested in ideas relating to the home and domesticity.

Location Corwen, Wales
