Imprinted is part of a series of artworks (2019) developed through a unique new collaboration between myself and Western Australian Designer and Art lover Melissa Cook culminating in a Limited Edition collection of beautiful art infused active wear garments featuring digital imagery sourced from my original artworks. The collaboration was launched in February 2020 with an exhibition of paintings and garments at Giroudworld, 500 Hay Street, Subiaco. A selection of designs featured in the New York Fashion Week 2021 https://www.giroud.com.au/collections/nyfw Giroud creates small unique collections that inspire our community to be courageous change agents of the future who wear plant conscious, social responsible no mass garments.

Sue Leeming is an Australian resident born in Taranaki, New Zealand and identifies as New Zealand Maori as well as of English and Scottish descent. She attended The University of Auckland, Elam School of Fine Art and majored in printmaking graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree and Post-Graduate Diploma of Fine Art in 1995. Sue immigrated to Perth, Western Australia in 1998 and is represented by STALA Contemporary Art Gallery. Sue experiments with the physicality of paint and process, allowing the imagery to spring from process. She explores the abstraction of land, sea and sky as a metaphor for the human experience. The paintings are like internal landscapes incorporating memories and connections to time and place and personal experiences.
