May at Burnham Leila Orienter of Oxford
After obtaining her BFA in 2000 Leila started working as a picture framer/ art supply sales clerk. This is where she developed a love for using lots of materials in her work. Now she is busy wrangling my busy two year old and scraping some time together to keep creative with not only her own work, but projects from the artist collective she belongs to.
The focus in the drawings are the relationships conveyed through the body language of the subjects to either each other or their surroundings. Leila enjoys working on a small scale because of the intimacy one can get from being able to hold art in the hand. It also feeds into her obsessive nature.
