Artist Statement

A work of art is the pouring out from an artist's soul into a visual form. This creates a connection with the viewer. My vision is forged with fiery passion but executed with cerebral coolness as it tumbles from mind to hand to brush. Splashes of vibrant color evolve into unforgettable, indelible images.

The dynamic nature of art ignites my creative process, driving me to experiment with palette, technique and medium, like an explorer in uncharted territory. My style is both expressive and representational, bringing to life colorful, uplifting landscapes, still life, portraits and fantasies in a wide variety of mediums (oils, acrylic, encaustic and mixed media).

Biography

Art is a way of life and a family tradition for Leanne Fink. From early childhood, the pencil and brush became an extension of her. She was always drawing. The first art teacher was her uncle, an accomplished oil painter. From him, she learned the basics of the craft. And the seeds were sown for a lifetime of creative expression. Leanne earned a degree in fine arts and pursued a commercial career as an art director. She began her own ad agency in the New York metro area. Family came next and she embraced the role of art instructor for her daughters. After retirement from nearly two decades in practice as a doctor of chiropractic, life has come full circle. Leanne has returned to the studio with renewed vitality and enjoys teaching both her Inner Artist Workshop Series and Paint Your Masterpiece! class. Leanne lives and creates her art in Loudoun County, Virginia.
