Her inspiration come from helping everyone in a way. As she explained the her abstract experiments she explained that “Thinking of a rainbow without its colors, really makes your brain think in newish ways. With abstract you can tell a story. With realistic you can tell a story too.”
When asked about her more realistic pieces she said her self portrait is of her talking at an art show. I can only assume this is a satire on all the meta references in pop culture today.
After the show Leah held a workshop where attendees could experiment with some of the techniques she described.
When asked what she hopes to inspire with her work she replied that she hopes her art can inspire poems.
