Art in the Home of Leah Duncan…


Art in the home of Leah Duncan

A: Art means to me…sharing a little piece of myself with the world.

R: Reading books / blogs / magazines … keeps me connected to other artists and designers, provides a different perspective, and allows me time to absorb the always inspiring and supportive community around me

T: Trends I see in art or graphic design are… geometric shapes, linework, hand-drawn aesthetics – all of which i use in my own work.

A: Artists I admire are… artists who have the courage to make a living doing what they love.

N: Never will I … be discouraged.


D: Dreams for my own work are about… growth. 


P: Projects I'm currently working on are… preparing to debut my first collection of surface patterns at Surtex NY.

R: Relaxing I do at / when / if… walks with my dog, yoga, a jog on austin's hike and bike trails, a glass wine, on my bike, a lunch out with friends.


I: Interesting art-places online are… an artist's personal blog is always my favorite read – getting to know the person behind the work.

N: New in my home is… blossoms from an early Spring.


T: Tomorrow I like to… go for a hike with the dog and husband in tow, sip some coffee on my back porch.

S: Studio, my studio is… a work in progress, a mess, a sanctuary, a place to be who i am today, and become who i will be tomorrow.
