The work of Leah Davis reminds her viewer that love, as the old saying goes, is not always in the details. The simplicity of Leah’s iconic drawing style, a contemporary graphic approach to color, line, and arrangement, gives her visually demanding work a charming personality. Repetitive patterns of smiling fish, flying birds, and hungry giraffes command her compositions. Davis primarily works with 2-dimensional media such as acrylic, watercolor, and markers, but from time to time will transfer her signature style into hand-sewn pillows or paper mache and ceramic sculptures. Regardless of medium, her use of color is unwavering, naturally leaning toward cheerful hues in complementary color schemes.
