  • Biography
Leah Davis, the childhood oddball from a wee Scottish town, is on a pop-portraiture-powered quest of self-discovery. Jump aboard this wild ride of vibrant exploration, where she's inviting you to join her colourful journey of empowerment, healing, and shameless self-expression.

She predominantly explores the realm of oil paints, though previously has experimented with mixed media.

Her portraits are a visual diary, charting her quirky evolution and resonating with kindred spirits. Navigating life's peaks and valleys, her subjects stand tall, wholeheartedly embracing the diverse spectrum of experiences that unfold before them.

Davis' art doesn't just offer solace; it throws a party celebrating the sheer strength in embracing your true, fabulous self. Dive into a world where emotions run wild, your "weird" little quirks are celebrated, and authenticity reigns supreme.

Decode the narratives within her portraits, becoming not just an observer but a co-author of this empowering journey into self-discovery.
