Stories come alive at night when ideas of magic and mystery feel more real. These drawings bring back the childhood feelings of comfort from being read a book at bedtime, adventures told by a campfire, or excited whispers of stories in the dark. This series of work originates from an array of Leah’s childhood recollections; book titles, a line from a song, fictional landscapes remembered in bits and pieces, her mother singing, or her fathers voice reading aloud.
Leah believes in the artist and the viewer bringing each of their history to the picture, she leaves clues hidden in the drawings for you to find and create your own story. Although a drawing may represent Leah’s own memories or imagination, they are also purposely abstract and mysterious. They possess a dream like quality, which is open to interpretation.
Over all these are pieces of escapism that pay homage to childhood, magic, mystery, and the thrill of going on a journey, whether it be in art, fiction, or our own life's adventure.
