Description This unique painting combines a Belly Dancer and Flamenco Dancer using a gouache design under a glass paint finish enhanced by sequins, beads and gold paint.I like to explore the connection between my Spanish roots,my grandfather came from Cordoba in Southern Spain, and Belly Dance and Flamenco.Bespoke mixed media glass paintings/prints are available and are a great gift for any Dancer wanting to be immortalised forever in their favourite pose!
Leanne Sanchez, London Member Since July 2007 Artist Statement I was born at home in Basildon or Basvegas as it's now affectionately known. I am inspired by Belly Dance, Flamenco, colour-all colour, texture, patterns, contrasts, decorative but practical design, designs with something to say.
I love Life Drawing. People are excellent! Fat or thin, tall, short, black or white, bring them on! When I think of an artist to aspire to I think of Degas.
If I attain that level of sketching in my lifetime i'd go to heaven with a huge grin on my face!
I have a BA (Hons) Knitted Textile Design but I don't have the patience for it anymore so I use mixed media so I can create my images faster.I design bespoke portraits of Belly Dancers at present and will be researching the influence of yoga on Belly Dance in the future.
I like to design eclectic peices that reflect my lifestyle, friends and family.
