Hi. My name is Leah, but growing up I was called many other names: Weird. Crazy. Strange. Since childhood, I’ve struggled with OCD, depression, anxiety, and PTSD. Why do I share this with you? What does it have to do with my artwork? Everything.
Creating has allowed me to experience and appreciate the world around me in a whole new light despite the things I’ve experienced and struggled with. I find comfort in the brush and exhilaration in the colors. It’s both satisfying and healing for me, and gives me the strength to choose joy, to see the bright side in life, and to make others smile. I hope my art energizes your home like the creation of it energizes me, and that it serves as a reminder that you, too, are unique, special, and original.
