Leah Craig

I have been drawing and creating since a very young age, inspired deeply by the beautiful West Coast scenery and island lifestyle. I have worked with many different mediums, such as pencil, charcol, ink, watercolour and acrylic paint. My parents were always very encouraging to create and express myself through art, which I quite enjoyed as it was a way to express myself without having to use words.

My technique is spontaneous and psychedelic . Painting has been not only therapeutic to my life but also very spiritual and cleansing.  I usually have full visions of each painting before i paint it. Sometimes it changes completely and sometimes it is expressed exactly how it is seen in my mind's eye.

I use large amounts of colour flowing together to weave a majestic look at the natural world,   Music has also largely inspired and helped to open my soul to the imperfections and steady rhythmic brush strokes. While painting my mind usually drifts into an almost hypnotic state.

My daughter is also a huge inspiration to my art, bringing fresh new ideas, pushing me to press forward with different projects and encouraging me to keep going.

I hope through my art that I am able to reach out to people and help to change this world for the better.
I look forward to experiencing, expressing and creating more work, and feel an unknowing excitement of what is yet to be created and shared with the world.
