I'm Leanne, welcome to my website.
I 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 my dog Sam.
Our home and my studio back onto the beautiful Hunts Creek and Bakala Falls, an amazing place for daily inspiration.
I grew up as we often do, loving drawing and painting, and then after school I 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.
In 2013 I decided to make time to paint again and my family gifted me an on-line course, 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’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 I will usually include acrylic Inks, acrylic paints, watercolours, prints, handmade papers, charcoal, pens and just about anything I can get my hands on. My work also usually includes elements of college and textured pattern.
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.
When I am not painting, getting dirty with clay or dreaming up new ideas, there's a good chance you will find me, In the garden with Jason, hunting for vintage treasures, visiting the theatre with my daughter or looking for travel tips for my next holiday
This is a place for me to share my creative journey through mixed media, paint and clay with you.
I hope you enjoy visiting my site.
