The Art and Illustrations

Leigha received a degree from the Rochester Institute of Technology School of Photographic Arts and Sciences where she developed an eye for great detail and love of fine art. This is captured in many of her photographs and illustrations that are found throughout the website. Her extensive knowledge of art, history and nature has served as a guiding force behind the Studio and serves as a personal outlet to explore the benefits each has to offer in everyday life.
