Biography

A large part of Leanne's passion for painting comes from an enjoyment of connecting with others through her art. She paints with the hope of evoking emotion within anyone viewing her work.

inspiration

Leanne draws on her love of wildlife and nature in her inspiration for many of her paintings. Regular visits to Pembrokeshire and Cornwall inspire her seascapes and boaty art. Her Astronomical interests also often present themselves in her vast, atmospheric landscapes in which she enjoys letting reflections, feelings and light come together to play on the canvas. She frequently refers to herself as a 'sky painter' and takes great pleasure creating dramatic skies in her landscape paintings.

medium

Leanne's striking skyscapes are made alla prima and use brush strokes to add dimension and feeling to produce atmospheric pieces of art which lighten reality and help to elevate the soul. She prefers to work with oil paints and watercolours for the majority of her works however she occasionally paints with acrylics and uses oil pastels. Colour plays an important role in all of her work and Leanne uses an uplifting palette choice to connect with others.
