Hello, I’m Leanne
Born and raised in South Africa I am now living in Rome, Italy with my husband Simon. We have five children and four grandchildren.
Painting with watercolour – Since we do a lot of biking in Italy, it’s an easy way to capture scenes along the way. These sketches have recently led to the making of three kids books and an illustrated blog of my bike ride from Rome to Oslo.
Qualifications – I have a diploma in Textile design, and studied the Charles Bargue drawing course in Rome. I’m a full time designer working on fabric and wallpaper collections. See them for sale on Spoonflower and Redbubble.
