Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist, Mixed/Multi Media
Born and raised in a small Ontario town, Leanne was keen to get out and explore the world as early as possible. After earning a Bachelor of Arts (area of concentration History), Leanne spent time living and working in Finance in London and Melbourne before undergoing a life altering experience. A previously unknown health issue came to the forefront and she underwent major brain surgery. As a result of this perspective of life and the way to live it changed. Living in Vancouver now, she is exploring painting and mixed media and completing studies at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.

Samples of my work
There’s a continuous struggle within my art process, a battle for competing ideas with decisions to be made. I want each piece to show this struggle, for tension to be felt with an overriding feeling of resolution to be felt as well. Strong lines and shapes, supersaturated colour, a plethora of movement. I don’t want the viewer to run out of questions to ask themselves while viewing it. Drawing my inspiration from the travel and experiences that hold in memory and collecting materials to upcycle and bring life to the canvas. When I start out, I’m thinking colour and balancing the positive and negative space and then build up to build the composition.
