Hi my name is Leah Bright,
I am an artist, teacher and mother of a 10 year old boy. I live on the Mornington Peninsula with my husband where we love the coastal lifestyle.
I have a Bachelor degree in Fine Arts and a Dip Ed in Teaching. I have been practicing as an artist for 20 years and have been teaching in a Secondary School for 17 years. After majoring in sculpture at University, I discovered the love for how things are structured and formed. This sense of curiosity has led me on a journey to explore the integrity of how things are designed and created. This can be seen in my detailed compositions in drawing, painting, sculpture and printmaking.
The concept of Slow Life Workshops has grown from a desire to reconnect with the quiet self, whilst creating art in a magical setting. All workshops are held in inspirational environments within Australia and overseas. These locations are chosen for their beauty and their ability to transcend people on their personal journey.
Teaching art is a wonderful opportunity to share knowledge about skills and processes and to help facilitate individual’s to explore their inner artist. My teaching style is energetic and enthusiastic where students are encouraged to let themselves evolve.
