Leanne Christie was born in Warwickshire, England. As a family, Leanne moved to Cornwall on the coast near Gwithian Towans where she spent her teenage years. This area is Leanne's main inspiration for her many seascapes.
Inspiration: Leanne paints vibrant flowerscapes, English country gardens & wildflower meadows. Professionally painting for over twenty years, she has been described as one of the most prolific artists in recent years. Painting and design have always been an integral part of Leanne's family life. Leanne's earliest memories are of watching her mum sketching and painting in her art studio. She grew up surrounded by paint and canvases forming an interest in art from an early age and going on to produce commercial pieces ever since. Leanne is now living in Devon, drawing inspiration from the ever-changing moorlands, beautiful coastlines and 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, regardless of whether they are flowerscapes, seascapes, waterscapes or moorlands, are textured with an almost three-dimensional feel. The observer feels drawn into the painting. Depending on the time of day or year, the light plays a magical part in making the paintings come to life.
These vibrant absorbing 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. Just as an English country garden changes through the seasons and moves towards the sun, enchantingly the paintings seem to mimic nature.
