About Leigh


My current work returns my focus to the animal world. The intimate raptor portraits explore these powerful birds as individuals with interior lives.

Looking back, my painting career began from my love for my rescued dogs.  It was the character within their faces that I loved to capture in paint.   My custom dog portraits have been featured in Martha Stewart Living, Real Simple, Domino and Huffington Post. 

In 2014, I started to practicing Vinyasa yoga. These figurative works , like my dog portraits, share gestural brushstrokes, bursts of color and a passion for the subject. My yoga inspired paintings were featured in the September/October 2017 issue of Spirituality and Health magazine. 

I work in my Seattle studio with my boss Agnes, a 4 pound rescued chihuahua.
