Leanne has always had a love of nature and animals, preferring to spend her time “in the bush” with a dog at her side whenever possible. Her passion for nature only increased when she started to learn to paint in 1997 and over the years, her art & photography has evolved to focus on this.
“My art is inspired by the way it connects me with nature. The light, movement, sounds, colours and textures. Through art, I can ground myself, and the creativity involved in creating art work has become an important part of my self-identity.
When I’m painting I feel a very close connection to our natural world – a sense of being at one with the world. Through my art, I aim to share these enriching emotions and my passion for the wild world with others. To capture a moment in time and make the observer feel as if they were there.”
