Fructus


Fresh from the drawing board this time!

The cabbage patch theory has lost favor due to recent discoveries.

Acrylic on old botanical texts, collaged on canvas, 6x6". I'll probably tweak this a bit more at some point, but here it is for now!

The media combination and command of theme are truly extraordinary. Your portfolio is impressive! I love square and panoramic formats, too. I still can't get over what you fit into a 6x6 framework.

This illo is stunning! The colour scheme is warm, cosy and really comforting.

Great job Leah, it's beautiful and very unique. I love how you incorporate text into your work, and it always has a common theme with the piece. I also love the mood and colors that carry throughout your work.
