Hello, and welcome to my page, I'm Leanne.

We live in Sydney, Australia and I’m the mum to 3 wonderful grown children .

I currently live in the Sydney suburb of Carlingford with my partner and our dog Sam. Our home and my studio back onto the beautiful Hunts Creek and Bakala Falls, an amazing place for daily inspiration.

 

 I often tell people I was an artist in a previous life. It's kind of true. I grew up as we often do, drawing and painting and I then studied and worked as a Graphic Artist for a number of years before I did a complete turn around and studied veterinary nursing! 
Today I still work full time in an animal based industry with dogs. I am very fortunate to have a I job I love.

So, welcome to my small corner of the world. In 2013  I decided to make time to paint again & since then I have taken a number of on-line courses and  joined a wonderful community of mentors and friends. Thanks to these people I have come to realise that art is just about letting go, having fun and just enjoying the process.

I encourage you to check out my latest collection where you can find out so much more about my art by just looking at it than I will ever be able to put into words, the people who are closest to me will tell you I’m not much of a talker, in fact I’m quite the introvert, preferring to spend my time just hanging out at home with my supplies or a good book and a cuppa.

I’m a lover of colours with botanical details. I create imaginative, colourful paintings in my lovely home studio with inspiration that is derived from the natural world, my urban landscape and my imagination. I love mixed media and will usually include Acrylic Inks, Acrylic paints, watercolours, prints, handmade papers, charcoal, pens and just about anything I can get my hands on!

I have also recently started to also play with ceramics I love terracotta and using engobes and slips, My ceramic pieces tend to have a rustic feel, but I'm still finding my way and I’m really enjoying the processes and the  difficulties  involved with this very different medium.

When I am not painting, getting dirty with clay or dreaming up new ideas, there's a good chance you will find me, hunting for vintage treasures, visiting the theatre with my daughter or looking for travel tips on the net for my next holiday

This is a place for me to share my creative journey through mixed media, paint  and clay with you.
