Hello, my name is Leaca (Lisa), I am a 40 something mother of three, married to a LEO, and lives in Alaska with three dogs. I have three grandchildren that are the greatest individuals God has ever created.
In 2014, I fell in love with mixed media, acrylics and started working on canvas. I have found my place in the art world by expressing myself in my journals and on canvas of all sizes.
I am inspired by color, shapes in nature, and by curiosity. I paint intuitively. Intuitive painting is when you connect on a spiritual level with your art. I normally meditate, stretch and journal before I start painting on canvas. As I paint I continue the meditative state if I can and I do not think about a direction. I just paint and see where it takes me. I paint in layers and sometimes it will take several weeks to finish a painting. When I finish a painting I normally have a phrase or quote that is on the edge of the canvas. It is my way of saying the canvas is complete.
The mediums I use vary with each piece. I work with acrylics, watercolors, and mixed media.
