I came across this cool artist during one of my internet excursions and I loove her interpretations of beauty. Impressively, Leigh paints faces in two ways, as both a makeup artist and a fine artist. Often inspired by makeup and fashion, she creates arresting imagery on canvas using pastel, acrylic, oil, pencil and charcoal. You can see more of her work and purchase prints at http://www.jkldesign.etsy.com, but she will also be having a show this weekend in New York! Looks like she will be accompanied by a few fab female artists and no doubt, it will be a fine display of talent.
Her blog is awesome too, it's called Create- http://www.jkldesign.blospot.com- and features her latest works along with her inspirations.
