Leanne Pearce, artist, has created a series of paintings which depict mothers breastfeeding their young. Breastfeeding mothers are strong, powerful, nurturing humans and perhaps at some points fragile. Each mother and baby partnership has their own unique story which can change and evolve quite organically or indeed be disrupted. Breastfeeding is often not plain sailing and many feel vunerable during this time. The series attempts to capture the loving, tender relationships and show a  of the maternal bond in formation.

"This series of work evolved from my personal experience of being a breastfeeding mother. I have breastfed both my young daughters and although initially my path was a rocky one, it was also precious and irreplaceable. During the time I was feeding my second daughter, Boadicea, I kept peering down at her as she looked up at me and it was the connection that compelled me to create a piece of art. I then began painting other mums and their little ones." Leanne Pearce

We are asking for crowdfunding in order to support the exhibition to tour to several venues across the UK. These venues will include universities and hospitals.

If you also feel passionately about this subject matter and helping to normalise breastfeeding, then please contribute. The more we get, the more people it will reach. Thank you.
