Leanne includes hall the details
Look closely at Leanne Broadbent's artworks – there is much hiding beneath the surface.
The Bridlington artist, who is about to embark on a residency at Burton Agnes Hall, uses everything from fragments of maps to scraps of newspaper in her mixed media works.
Burton Agnes Collection 2, pictured here, includes a segment of wallpaper from Sewerby Hall alongside acrylic ink, watercolour and artist's pen.
"I like the exploration you get with mixed media, the unpredictability, as you never know what effect you are going to achieve," she said.

"It is the freedom of it. The wallpaper from Sewerby was from some new samples they'd been looking at, and had decided to throw out.
"They asked if I wanted them, as they know I use different materials in my work."
Leanne, who was previously the artist in residence at Sewerby Hall, near Bridlington, will be displaying this and other artworks during her October residency at Burton Agnes Hall.
Her two-week residency at the Elizabethan stately home, near Driffield, will see Leanne joined by the mixed media artist Sue Spivey.
"It is somewhere I visited with my family when I was growing up and has influenced my work," said Leanne.
"There's elements of the hall I want to make sketches of, such as the gorgeous grounds and the beautiful pieces of furniture, which will prompt ideas for my own work, which is inspired by children's literature."
Depending on the weather, Leanne will be sketching in the grounds of the building or inside the hall.
She said: "It is helpful. Normally, you are stuck in your studio with no idea how others will react to your work – when you are an artist in residence people chat with you, sometimes they like it, sometimes they don't.
"But it means others can engage with your work."
