Leigh Vardanega is an abstract artist living on Sydney’s Northern Beaches. Her work is inspired by travel memories, tropical destinations, and the bush and coastal environment that surround her home.
She is drawn to the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi where one finds beauty in things imperfect, impermanent and incomplete. Leigh works in many layers of paint and glaze, often scratching and sanding back the surface to recreate the patina of an aged weathered surface.
Leigh’s paintings are a celebration of her love of colour, texture and pattern and above all she aims to evoke joy and inspire an appreciation of the natural world.
