Illustrations by Leda Owens
Book Illustrations Are My Focus
I love helping a story visually come to life.
Art books, art workshops and classes, as well as numerous art shows on TV and a few You Tube videos have helped encouraging my creative juices.
Although I dabbled in different mediums, I focused on watercolor as my favorite choice of expression, but soon learned the value of alcohol-based markers for my illustrations.
When not painting, I enjoy crocheting, photography and weaving. In 2020, I was elected President of the Lilburn Arts Alliance.

Hi, I'm Leda
I have always been interested in art – ever since my high school art class. After that first class, I was hooked on anything dealing with art. Over the years, art books, art workshops and classes, as well as numerous art shows on TV and a few You Tube videos have helped encouraging my creative juices. Attending art shows of other aspiring artists as well as those with established records of art success has always been one of my favorite activities. As a member of the Lilburn Arts Alliance, I have been able to rub shoulders with those who use various mediums. These opportunities to talk with local artists has given me more confidence to try new ideas. Additionally, my wonderful husband has also been a strong support in my life as a budding artist.
