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.
‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’ depicts the sketchy illustration of a woman, beautifully crafted from soft pencil lines, working light and shade to extraordinary effect. Around the muse, Henly has added texture and tonality, using thick strokes of black paint, blotches of purple pigment, and soft, floating bubbles of aquamarine. To finish the piece, Henly has added the titular words in bright pink, cursive script.
