Leonie's current show Plan comes down this Saturday (18th August) after a successful run at the excellent Exhibit Gallery on the site of the Golden Lane Estate (a postwar modernist architectural wonder close to the Barbican centre).

'Presenting works from her large-scale ‘The Envisageable Cities’ series together for the first time, alongside new works created exclusively for the exhibition, Leonie’s beguiling, intricate and fastidiously detailed works on paper continue to dissect and examine the constructed world, and how it shapes us.'

On Saturday 21st July a drop-in drawing workshop on the Golden Lane estate was run by Leonie in conjunction with the show.

The 'Big Draw' starts again in October (
