Leigh's beautifully crafted drawings and paintings are influenced by her connection to nature and her fascination with the intangible divinity of our shared human experience.
Leigh D Walker is an award winning Scottish artist, based in Australia. Her art practice is both meditative and intuitive and she seeks to explore concepts of the sublime and the spiritual through her abstract, landscape and figurative work.
Both my husband and I were instantly captivated by this haunting piece when we first viewed at an exhibition some years back. It’s a complex drawing done in pencil and charcoal and has layers of symbolism that spoke to us both but in different ways. Since our purchase it has held pride of place in our home wherever we may be. Our guests and visitors always compliment us on this choice and are eager to hear its origin. We have no hesitation in recommending Leigh Walker and her incredible talent.
I have been doing life drawing classes with Leigh Walker since about 2015. In that time Leigh has become both a trusted artistic mentor and a friend. She is relaxed, witty, cheerful, positive and energetic. She is also an accomplished visual artist in her own right and is able to share her knowledge of materials and techniques with her students. She is respectful and encouraging–always able to find the good in her students’ work so as to reassure and gently prod them to try new things and test their creative boundaries. I greatly enjoy Leigh’s teaching and the bonhomie of the life drawing class. That’s why I keep coming back!
