ArtyLove. Paintings and drawings by Leanne Riley.
I am based in Liverpool, although my work has been delivered as far as the Northeast and down to the Southwest. I mainly create abstract acrylic paintings, however I enjoy experimenting with various mediums and playing around with what can be created. I have found collage a great loosening up exercise, to try new textures and composition. I have discovered a love for ink and water and like to draw people and nature. I love the way the ink bleeds, creating depth and tone. With my acrylic paintings, I favour a seascape or sky setting and I like using the texture of the material I’m painting on as part of the piece. I am currently using logs to paint on… logs meant for our fire! But the texture and shape gives each piece a unique look.
One place my paintings are particularly suited for is in therapy/counselling spaces. They are calming and add gentle colour to the environment. You can take a look on the paintings section of this website, but do get in touch using the contact page if you’ve got something in mind for your space.
