As you may have guessed, my name is Leigh. I actually go by Leigh Ann to most people :) I have been creating art since I was very young. I have always loved practicing with any medium I could find and when I found a new one, I would go all-in and buy all the supplies like it was going to be a new career. I mean, what's the sense in trying something new if I wasn't going to do it right? ;) I started early by drawing portraits, then painted ceramic figures and when I got to high school, I "majored" in art. But my other love in life is science, so I took many years away from my art to pursue degrees in science. College..then grad school..twice. Finally, during an extremely stressful time in my life, I decided to go back to painting. I couldn't believe how much better it made me feel. Time just melts away when I'm engrossed in a project. Since then, I have kept up with it in some form or another. Recently, I have found an amazing job and now have more time to devote to creating. I am a STEAM Educator, so I get to combine my passions for science, art, and education. Who could ask for anything better? I have recently learned how to paint using acrylic pouring and alcohol inks - a whole new set of supplies to buy! :P But, no matter what I'm using, I love creating and I would love to have others own a piece of my heart!
