Leanne Christie was born in Warwickshire, England. As a family Leanne moved to Cornwall where she spent her teenage years. Professionally painting for over twenty years, she has been described as one of the most prolific artists in recent years. Painting has always been an integral part of Leanne’s life. Leanne’s earliest memories are of watching her mum sketching and painting in her studio. Leanne now lives in Devon, drawing inspiration from Devon’s famous floral hedgerows. Leanne’s work is unique and highly sought after.
All of Leanne’s paintings are predominately oil, embellished with glitter, jewels and gold leaf. These unique paintings 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.
The Flowerscapes: These vibrant paintings have an amazing amount of detail in them. Using high quality oil paint and other mediums, Leanne captures an ethereal landscape with glistening flower petals that seduces the observer into touching the artwork.
