"By making these prints, I hope to share my enjoyment of texture, composition, and the beauty of type."
Jeannet Leendertse works with type on a daily basis when designing books and book covers for the trade. In her personal work, she explores what can be done with type when it is taken at face value.
Leendertse received her training in The Netherlands at the Academie voor Beeldende Vormgeving Tilburg en Academie St. Joost Breda. In 1989, she moved to the United States and began her commercial design career.
Leendertse creates her prints using found and digital type, and handmade and collaged textures. She uses deconstruction and layering to achieve her compositions.
