Leanna is an award-winning artist and has participated in many juried shows across the U.S. She began drawing at age three. Later, her mother encouraged her to draw the human figure believing, like the Renaissance artists, that the human figure is the foundation of an artist’s education.
Being self-taught, Leanna enjoys the freedom of learning and is adept at painting in several mediums . She doesn’t try to brand herself with a specific style nor does she feel that “being recognized” is very important to her.
Her inspiration comes from people who love her artwork, and their gratitude keeps her painting. Joining Parklane Gallery in 2001 was beneficial to her as it added different bright sides to her artistic career.
