Bold color and fundamental shape

define her painting style.

 

Leanne Fink is a contemporary American artist who creates visually dynamic oil paintings that awaken the senses and move the spirit. Her art is expressive and representational. On one level, it delights viewers with strong shapes, a bold palette and textural elements. And yet, in that same moment, it reaches through to the heart of the art lover and demands introspection. 


In the never ending pursuit of artistic excellence, Leanne draws inspiration from places far away, close to home, and from within. Exploring other cultures, countries, and climates fuels her passion to paint by providing imagery of cities, antiquities, land and sea. The pastoral surroundings of her Northern Virginia residence nourish her need for always having nature's beauty nearby. Expressing the lingering memories of the dreamscape quenches her thirst for imagery that is open to a more ambiguous interpretation.


LEANNE'S ART IS VISUAL JOY. It is sophisticated. The artist brings a masterful sense of color's therapeutic value to every composition. Her paintings seem to move with vibrational scintillation. Textural elements applied with palette knife energize and add satisfying complexity to the viewer's experience. Smooth, blended areas rest the mind's eye and encourage pausing for a moment of contemplation. 


FINK STATES, "The act of creating a work of art allows the viewer to see into the soul of the artist. They catch a glimpse of what I am thinking and feeling, and how I reflect the world around me. 


"Sharing my visual interpretation can have a profound effect. Art is essential to human nature. It is like a balm that can heal a spirit, change a viewpoint, showcase beauty and add a smile. I always choose imagery that uplifts my viewer and offers them an oasis to rest for a moment and recharge." 


Leanne is represented by District Arts Gallery in Maryland. She has received awards of excellence for her work from Manhattan Arts International in addition to regional recognition awards. Her art has been included in many juried exhibitions and can be found in both corporate and private collections worldwide. 

 

In the fabric of life, many threads are woven. Art has been a way of life and a family tradition since early childhood. Leanne grew up in New Jersey. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Seton Hall University and pursued a commercial career as an art director. She began her own ad agency in the New York metropolitan area. Later, she earned a Doctorate in Chiropractic from Life University. Never relinquishing her hold on the thread of art, Leanne was in private practice in the Washington, DC region with her husband for two decades. During that time she pursued portrait commissions. Upon retiring from chiropractic, her life came full circle. She considers her return to oil painting a gift to be treasured every day.
