A resource worth protecting, how big is your footprint?

Inspiration for the Artwork

Growing up spending summers on our lakes and having conservation talks and projects with her father and brother, Leah has had a lifelong connection to our local waterways. Her conservationist history and artistic curiosity drive her to question our unintended impacts on the world in which we live. How do we impact the soft fragile banks of our local rivers, lakes, and wetlands? What do we unknowingly impact? Native fish are one of the obvious answers.

Artist Bio

Leah is a local professional artist with a focus on Painting, fabric Batik, and large-scale Murals. She has contracted multiple times with the City of Goshen for beautification murals and participated in the Goshen Storm Drain Art Project three years ago. She fully immerses herself in every project she takes on. Her dedication to this style of work shows in the compiled research and networking she does with local professionals around every subject she paints. Leah’s style can best be described as expressive and impressionistic, often with a flash of realism interwoven. She studied fine art at Manchester College and has since been working in the Goshen / Elkhart region.
