Miss Led, aka Joanna Henly, is a contemporary British artist and illustrator. Her work is known for its obsessively detailed approach, utilising a range of media, scale, and technique, across print, paper, canvas, murals, installation, and digital. Typically, Henly’s work revolves around the classic portrait form, updating it with her distinctive dynamic and textured approach.
‘IRL (In Real Life)’ depicts the sketchy illustration of a woman, beautifully crafted from soft pencil lines, working light and shade to extraordinary effect. All around the muse, Henly has built up texture and tonality, adding thick strokes of blue paint; abstract, heart shapes; floating bubbles of beige pigment; scribbles; doodles; and hand-scrawled, graphic type, for a brilliant, contemporary collage effect.
