Leah Early

American-born and now based on the South Coast of Australia, Leah Ann Early is a self-taught contemporary abstract artist practicing in both fine art and commercial collage. A founding member of the Sydney Collage Society, Leah believes collage is a powerful visual communicator that directly pushes the boundaries between contemporary art, storytelling and craft - where the line of found and made is blurred for the better.

Throughout Leah’s practice, she uses a mixture of vintage and modern publications to source materials, renewing the ephemera to create colour fields that modulate through shape and tone, utilising textures and imprinting layers to lift depth and history from the pigmentation itself. What emerges in her work is a lived experience, a meditation in decisions, pathways and stories.
