Leigha --, California Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement For Originals go to: LeighaArt.etsy.com
Background: “Leigha,” a native of Southern California, has a background primarily in Graphic Arts and Illustration which she studied in college for a BFA Degree. Art is an on-going expression so the study and personal enrichment continues just as colors change with the setting of the sun and the ripple of the ocean. She has exhibited work in shows and community events in Southern California including the nationally acclaimed Laguna “Art-A-Fair” and the annual “Expressions” show in the San Bernardino County Museum.
Description of work: Leigha paints with acrylic but also uses charcoal and pastels. As a Graphic Designer she also creates in a “digital” medium. Her primary look has an energetic surreal approach conveying inner warmth, tranquility and strength. Does her work tell a story or inspire you to conjure one?
Philosophy: Spread Hope. Her trademark, the setting/rising sun/moon represents her belief, her faith that God promises a better, brighter future on the horizons of tomorrow. “If you plant a garden you have faith that the Sun will shine tomorrow.”
