Leigh Anne is a San Diego based watercolor artist with a great affection for the California coast, spring flowers, cardinals in winter, and simple joys found in nature. She enjoys capturing a moment of beauty for a variety of canvases through painting "live" and through photographic journaling. Her paintings exhibit a variety of watercolor but only an occasional acrylic with different explorations of brush and water techniques. She hopes her passion to create visual art inspires you to take a moment in her artistic galleries to share some of the treasures she holds dear. Some of her favorite art includes the works of Georgia O'Keeffe, Winslow Homer, Monet, Degas, Renoir, Manet, classic Italian art and sculpture, European architecture as well as the American folk art of Grandma Moses.
