Hello

I'm Leigh. I've always loved mucking about with a pencil and enjoyed working in some very creative advertising agencies in London, Hong Kong and Spain as an award winning art director.

I've also created illustrations for various companies including Camelot, Tanqueray Gin, First Direct,The Crafty Kit Company, NB Distillery,  and my paintings have appeared in Elle Magazine, TV Times, Lurzers archive, The Womens Artists Diary, The AOI annual, and also hang in various rooms around the world, including above the piano of Steven Isserlis CBE and Connie Shih. 

I was a finalist in the Scottish Portrait Artists Award 2020 and longlisted in 2021, and I'm proud to be a part of this years Sky TV Portrait Artist of the Year, where I got to paint the lithe and lovely Alexa Chung.

 

I love painting portraits - I love capturing the line and the intensity of a person and the story they have inside.
