On Saturday, Feb. 15 at 3 p.m., Tanya Leonard will be on hand for an art performance of music and painting. Tanya is a singer songwriter, who will perform a magical painting performance while singing with her guitarist to create a lovingly beautiful and intimate experience. A canvas will be given and art supplies provided to create with the performer.
From Connecticut,. Leonard also has lived and performed in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. Tanya creates her images on canvas and paper working in acrylic, watercolor, ink and pencil, glitter, cosmetics and other mixed medias. Recently she has begun expanding her visions to larger foundations while always maintaining the magical integrity of her intricate designs. Tanya foregoes working on an easel and chooses to work from her lap instead, usually from a spot on the floor. She also paints while performing, which allows for an intimate and unique exchange between artist and audience.
