Leanne had a love of different art forms since her mid-twenties and dabbled in everything from painting and routing signs to Scrimshaw, India Ink paintings on wood, copper foil-stained glass and more. She had taken a couple of art classes, but mostly considers herself a self-taught artist. Lifestyle changes, moving from Illinois to Colorado and raising three boys altered her art. Leanne had the opportunity to tour the huge Yule Marble Quarry. The pure white marble she paints on became her new canvas.
The raw marble comes from the Yule Marble Quarry in Marble, Colorado. Here our nation has acquired this pure marble for some of our well-known National Monuments, such as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and Lincoln Memorial. In Arizona, The Mohave County Court House in Kingman also contains this wonderful white marble along with many other monuments throughout our Country.
The Yule Marble Quarry is considered to have the highest quality in the world! I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to show my art on this magnificent stone and in this magnificent show!
