Leanne McLaughlin is a graduate of the University of Ulster's Fine and Applied Art AB Degree programme. Her large scale sculptures have been exhibited nationally and internationally.  In the past few years, Leanne has taken on a number of high profile commissions from Mountshannon Arts Festival, Blarney Castle in Cork, University College Dublin, City of Culture-Derry and The National Botanic Gardens.

​Leanne works in a variety of mediums including print, oil, willow, bamboo, ink, metal and plastics. Her work is highly distinctive, original and emotionally poignant.

​"For this sculpture, I'm looking at the idea of how, during lockdown, we have used our environment as a sanctuary, our safe place, both physically and mentally. We were, and remain, cocooned from harm by the strength of our environment and families"
