#CreativeDespiteCancer is my free initiative to help bring the creativity of people who have been affected by cancer to a wider audience. Interested in being featured? Then look here.
It’s my pleasure to introduce you to Jenny Leach.
Jenny is an artist and teacher.
“At one point it felt like the Royal Marsden cancer hospital in Chelsea, London was my first home, as everything seemed to happen at once.”
Jenny says that carrying on with her creative life provided a “soul space” to escape from the physical and emotional realities of cancer treatment – an external focus outside of the discomfort, depression and insecurity within.
“Cancer also provided the motivation to make changes for a better and more stress free life.”
These changes included putting together a book of her Paintings, Prints and Drawings (from 1986 – 2016) which is now in print.
“Apart from my dog, Milli, creativity is my best and most loyal companion.”
