Artful Wednesday: Leigh Viner

The art of Leigh Viner is sparse, leaving so much to the imagination.  Just what are they thinking behind those eyes?

Leigh is inspired by the fashion industry, and having worked as a make-up artist for a time, it is easy to see how both have positively affected her work.

I like the unfinished quality of her pieces.  As I said before, it leaves so much open to the imagination.  One might say that by leaving so much out of her work, that it lacks technical merit.  I would direct you to the quality and study she's put into her faces.  The expressions she has rendered are exquisite and real.

To purchase Leigh's work, visit her etsy site.  She also has a website where you can explore her painting and photography galleries as well as other links.
