Leah Giberson Boston
After receiving her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art in 1997, Leah made her living as an interactive designer and art director in Boston for over ten years, painting only periodically. Thanks in great part to the audience she's found through various online art sites, she has been able to paint almost full time since the spring of 2008. Her current body of work falls somewhere between the worlds of photography, painting and collage. She begins her pieces with photographs of seemingly ordinary and mundane scenes, which she then paints directly upon to distill and reveal the visually poignant moments that exist all around us, but are usually overlooked. Despite all the suburban scenes and mid-century modern design in her work, she was actually raised by artists deep in the woods of NH and now lives and works on the top floor of a sunny triple-decker apartment in Boston.
