Zaleha Othman - Pop Up


Zaleha Othman

Zaleha loves painting late into the night and often uses the music of Leonard Cohen to lure an assortment of characters into finding a home on her canvases. Perhaps influenced by her love of the Muppets, Carl Jung and David Lynch, she especially likes it when her artwork becomes a space where the darker and lighter shades of the psyche can dance with one another.

Aside from forming a geriatric girl group on the Isle of Bute in her old age, she also dreams of creating children’s books and graphic novels inspired by walking around the world with her own travelling puppet show and a grumpy donkey.

Pathways has been a rich journey indeed, full of unexpected twists and turns. I feel so privileged to have had the level of contact with, and expertise from publishers and illustrators alike.
