Artist Statement - "Abstract Landscape/Cityscape" Series

My creativity is inspired by the French Salon painters and how they captured history, social conscience and architecture by painting the people and environments surrounding them. My travels to paint lanscapes during my plein-air painting sessions led me to produce a body of beautiful impressionistic works of art inspired by nature's ever-changing scenery and familiar places. 

Artist Bio

Alicia Leeke is a South Carolina based painter incorporating research-related imagery into her artwork. Originally a biology major and former graphic designer, she uses digital technology to blend her passions of art and science. Her evolution from painting to new media pushes the boundaries of her work even further. Leeke was awarded grants by the Joan Mitchell Foundation in New York City, the South Carolina Arts Commission, and a grant by the Charleston Scientific and Cultural Education Fund to produce a traveling exhibition entitled: View from Under the Microscope: Science-based Learning Through Art. The exhibition educates the non-scientific community about the importance plankton play in our life and why we need to be good stewards of our water bodies. She is an international, award-winning artist whose work is collected around the globe from New York City to Finland, and Austria to Dubai.
