'Portrait with Mask'
Since successfully completing her first degree in fine art at Northumbria University, Leanne has been commissioned to paint many faces, some of which appear regularly in the public arena.
She gained a place in the semi-finals of the ITV show ‘A Brush With Fame’ in which she painted a whole host of celebrities including Tanni Grey-Thompson and Paul Nicholas. She was also asked to capture on canvas the faces of Cheryl Tweedy and Ashley Cole for a wedding gift.
More recently she appeared as a contestant on Sky Art Portrait Artist of the Year, where she painted Robert Bathurst. Leanne has exhibited her artwork throughout the country in solo exhibitions at universities, galleries, hospitals and public spaces.
She is currently exploring light and shadow in her portraiture to evoke a dynamic mood and image. Leanne accepts commissions, more of her work can been seen on her website and social media.
