Leanne Christie is an embellished oil painter from Warwickshire, now living in Devon. Her paintings of wild flower meadows and English country gardens are unmistakably vibrant and dazzling. Once seen, never forgotten. Professionally painting for over twenty years, art and design has always been an important part of Leanne’s family life. Some of her earliest memories are of watching her mum sketching and painting in her art studio. She grew up surrounded by paint, brushes, the smell of turps and canvases, which formed an interest in art from an early age.
‘Painting has always been an integral part of my life I love to design, create, experiment and I’m passionate about colours, especially vibrant transparent colours and anything that shimmers.
Leanne’s paintings are predominately oil, embellished with glitter, jewels and metal leaf. These unique paintings, regardless of whether they are flowerscapes, seascapes, waterscapes or moorlands, are textured with an almost three dimensional feel. Depending on the time of day or year, the light plays a magical part in making the paintings come to life.
