Artist Bio - Leia Henderson
I do not have any formal art training but learnt to paint on my own by researching and borrowing books from the library. I have always loved art in all its forms and have visited museums all around the world in my travels. I have appreciated art since I started travelling and relating this to the history and culture of the countries I have visited. I have always been fascinated by the life and work of famous artists and studied how they have created beautiful paintings during their lifetime.
When I started painting a few years back, I had to discover what I wanted to do and experimented different mediums. I found myself immersed in acrylic more than anything else and this is what I have been doing. I enjoy painting streetcapes, city landscapes, European city landscapes and some parts of my country of birth.
