It is intensely important to me to create and make art. It’s an inner drive and I sometimes wake in the middle of the night with the beginnings of a painting or drawing in my head. I love to play about with different techniques and materials to create unique, emotive and expressive art. Because I work in a very intuitive way, I never know what’s going to happen in the studio day to day – there’s always a surprise just round the corner!
Does your home lack colour, vitality and spirit?
Are you sensing that your home needs a spark to make it more you, more alive? Not being sure how to create that spark can be frustrating.
When you find a piece of art that resonates with you, the art chooses you, not the other way round.
Add vibrance and creative energy to your life with a contemporary art piece that reflects who you are – individualistic, creative and yes, a little quirky.
My original paintings, original drawings and prints are created through a very intuitive process which means that people can connect with my work on many levels. Whether you have an appreciation for fine art, or you’re chasing something a little more quirky to suit your personality, I’m sure you’ll find something to your taste.
My loyal buyers tell me my art prints make unique gifts that are both personal and thoughtful. My fine art prints and quirky art prints are created to be treasured for many years to come.
Good craftsmanship and quality materials are very much part of my ethos. I only use high pigment artist grade paints for my original works and archival grade paper and inks for my prints
I share decades of teaching experience and reveal my process during my bespoke art classes. Learn more about how you can create your vision here.
Meet Leigh D Walker, award-winning British contemporary artist living and working in Australia whose passions are drawing, painting and printmaking. Encompassing abstract and figurative genres, Leigh’s intuitive and emotive art is widely exhibited in both Australia and the United Kingdom.
Leigh’s unique work is influenced by her interest in our connections to the physical, emotional and spiritual aspects of ourselves. Having studied extensively in the UK, she loves to share her knowledge and skills and facilitates an exciting variety of creative workshops and classes. Her mission is to energise others and help them discover their creative potential.
A sample of lovely things my buyers and students have said about my work.
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!
I bought 2 gorgeous prints from Leigh. They are of amazing quality, the colours are so vivid and so reasonably priced. Leigh’s work is unique and beautifully detailed. The ordering process was quick and simple. The packaging was fantastic and considering the prints travelled from Australia to Scotland, I had them up on my wall within days of order. I only wish I had more wall space to display more of Leigh’s work! I would absolutely recommend Leigh’s work to anyone – it always draws positive comments from visitors.
