Before I tell you about me I'd like to offer you an invitation to receive on a deeper level - ideas, projects & processes, the connections I make and the inspiration I gather.
I have a passion for connection and expression, and my art intends to bring these two things together.
Hello, I’m Leyla, and this is a little snippet of who I am, what I do and why I do it. Born in Australia and raised in country-side Ireland, I made my way back to Aus, creating a cosy home and a beautiful community by the sea on the Mornington Peninsula.
Community, connection and nature are all big parts of my life with a focus on supporting others to take up space and be themselves, so they can then connect with the world around them more deeply.
I use a continuous line style, allowing for bold and fluid figures to emerge organically. I create bodies of work using themes that run through my life as inspiration. My commissioned art pieces are completely unique to each individual. I offer body portraits, life drawing workshops throughout Melbourne and collaborate with aligned companies.
My Studio is located on the land of the Boon Warrung/Bunurong People of the Kulin National. My studio is just over an hour outside Melbourne in Shoreham.
If you have any questions I’d love to hear from you, always open to collaboration ideas.
