Leah has been painting since the start of this century, and helping others find their visual voice. In her new storefront studio in downtown Helena, MT, ‘The Art Space’, she has plenty of room to paint and display her large works, teach methods of painting to others, and host a variety of events.
She received her BFA in Fine Arts and Commercial Design from Walla Walla University in 2003, and studied in immersive graduate studio sessions at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts and Virginia Commonwealth University.
