"There is a certain freedom in my use of mixed media that lets me loose myself in whatever subject I choose to paint, the colors that I use are also very important. The chicken series has been an exploration of the world of Heritage Breed Chickens. The best part being that they seem to resemble some of the characters I knew in the fashion world.” Today Leah splits her time between her work in NYC as Exhibition Outreach Program Director at the Art Students League of New York and her studio/home in Salem, NY.
