From Afternoons, 1:25 pm on 29 June 2023

Every Sunday, Masterton-based Jann Lenihan ironed her work clothes, day-dreaming about the art she'd make if she had time.

She began drawing the ironing board cover, and now, 20 years later Jann's piece, titled Ironing Bored has been shortlisted for the prestigious Parkin Drawing Prize.

There were 500 entries this year, and the 86 finalists will be on display from August 3rd.

Jann speaks to Jesse about about making the shortlist.
