Leatha’s personal journey into art is guided by her spontaneous desire to capture the beauty and elegance of her surroundings whether it is in a landscape or still-life. Many of her paintings reflect her personal interpretations of her travels throughout Europe. The bold use of colors and light draws one into her impressionistic landscapes. Semi-abstracted studies of everyday scenes and nature create a sense of nostalgia and tranquility. Besides canvas and color, it is evident in Leatha’s paintings that her imagination and emotions are her most essential tools. Her work can also be seen locally at Beach House Gallery in Dunedin or on her website.
If one word could describe my art it would be COLOR! Vibrant, bold color is what sparks my creativity. Inspired by the materials, I have given my heart to two practices. Although very different specialities my encaustic wax paintings and my watercolors on Yupo do have commonalities. They are anchored by color! Both mediums permit transparency, are fluid and exude a sense of movement. These common elements enable me to integrate painting and collage while allowing for the element of surprise in both.
