From the time she could hold a crayon, Leigh loved to draw. Having always been interested in cartoons and especially fantasy creatures, fairies, sprites and even trolls, Leigh knew her dream was to eventually go into that field.
Leigh attended Sam Houston State University and went on to receive her Associates Degree from the Art Institute of Houston where she trained in Illustration and Computer Animation. Her hobbies include reading, history, creating fantasy fashion designs and the SCA.
The Society for Creative Anachronism is an international organization dedicated to researching and re-creating the arts and skills of pre-17th-century Europe including all aspects of Middle Age and Renaissance era living. Her creativity was implemented into the design of a membership roster that Leigh herself produced where each member’s personal characteristics inspired amazing animal-like caricatures.
Leigh’s latest project illustrating Hamilton Troll and his many friends has been a ton of fun and she like the author can not wait for everyone to fall in love with these characters as well.
