Meet Leda, my wife

Leda has always been interested in art – ever since her high school art class. After that first class, she was hooked on anything dealing with art. Over the years, art books, art workshops and classes, as well as numerous art shows on TV and a few You Tube videos have helped in encouraging the creative juices. Attending art shows of other aspiring artists as well as those with established records of art success has always been one of her favorite activities. As a member of the Lilburn Arts Alliance, she has been able to rub shoulders with those who use various mediums. These opportunities to talk with local artists has given her more confidence to try new ideas. Additionally, her wonderful husband has also been a strong support in her life as a budding artist.

Although she has dabbled in different mediums, she focused on watercolor as her favorite choice of expression, but soon learned the value of alcohol-based markers to do her illustrations.

When not painting, she enjoys crocheting, photography and weaving. In 2020 she was elected President of the Lilburn Arts Alliance.

In 2018, Leda’s first book containing her illustrations was published. Since then she had completed the illustrations for both volumes of “Ordinary People -Extraordinary God.” She has also illustrated two other books for local children’s authors as well as four additional children’s books for Mike Owens. You can see all of Leda’s excellent artwork in most of the books by her husband.

She has 2 books scheduled for 2021 which will utilize her photography skills as both books will be completely done with photographs.
