Artists Statement

I have, for all of my life, been a contradiction and that is what my art aims to capture. The internal struggle in myself, the beautiful and the macabre, the serious and the whimsical. I try to find the silver lining in the darkest of things, the elegance in the monstrous and the corruption in perfection. Hopefully it works and the people that look at my stuff find something worthwhile in there.

About Me

My name is Leanne and this is my magical magorium.

For a very short time as a child I thought I was something special. Then I grew up and realised I'm nothing. Certainly not special. Not gifted, or extraordinary in any way and it was the most freeing thing I had ever experienced.

I've worked my way through an assortment of jobs and education and learned many things along the way. Most have been useful. Some haven't, but the experience has taught me something and that's the cherry on top.

My passions are art, make up and writing. I spend all of my free time either painting/making things or writing stories about incredibly problematic characters, all of them with lives that are complicated, messy and filled with guilt of one sort or another.

There are things in my head that I want to share with the world. (I'm not sure if the world wants them or not, but that's never stopped me before.) I've got a long way to go to get to where I want to be, but I'm getting there, bit by little bit.
