The Devon Countryside at it's most dazzling with Leanna Christie's mixed media canvas paintings.
'Painting has always been an integral part of my life. My mum is an amazing artist and would actually make a good forger. I grew up surrounded by all her art stuff.
I was twelve when she guided me through my first oil painting. The same technique she taught me I still use in my skies and backgrounds . I love to design, create, experiment and I’m passionate about colours especially vibrant transparent colours and anything that shimmers.
My head is full of a million paintings and any chance I get to transfer that on to canvas is heaven… time simply disappears and I find it therapeutic. Especially if I’m dealing with some issue, painting gets it all out of my system and all that energy whether negative or not gets put on canvas. It’s never wasted. In fact I’ve produced my best pieces when I’m dealing with rubbish in my life.’
