Jeanne Mundy - Artist and Illustrator
I am very privileged to have a log cabin studio situated on farmland in Nidderdale.
My paintings often depict sheep, derelict barns, big skies, snow-covered landscapes.
Much of my inspiration comes from both coast and countryside, working ‘en plein air’ weather permitting, using a range of media; water-colour, acrylic, charcoal, pen, pencil and ink.
My style is diverse, sometimes experimental, and always developing. I strive to create feelings of joy and wonder, fun and curiosity, whilst attempting to capture a sense of place and season. Holidays at home and abroad provide new and exciting locations and I love to use these opportunities to explore new ideas for paintings.
I sell both locally and internationally, and exhibit widely within Yorkshire.
My paintings are on sale in ‘SMART Gallery’ Leeds alongside other Yorkshire artists.
Currently I have an exhibition in Gallery49 Bridlington entitled
‘Once Upon A Wall’ which will be in place until the beginning of August 2021

It was great fun welcoming the BBC television crew into my studio for an episode of series 4 ‘The Farmers Country Showdown’. In 2018 I featured on Forces TV and Look North when providing the artwork for Dan Metcalfe’s highly acclaimed WW1 ‘Fields of Mud, Seeds of Hope’ installation in Ripon Cathedral, and my designs for the steel figures remain in locations around Ripon.
I have taken several commissions and sold work to clients in USA, Canada and New Zealand.
As an illustrator, i have developed a series of wacky greetings cards entitled 'Some rabbits....' that are based on rabbits in various ironic and humorous situations, and are for sale in Ripon at Forbes Gifts and interiors and Gallery49 Bridlington.
