About Leah Hicks

Leah Hicks, born-1978, Carleton Place, Ontario. Living in a compelling world of Contrast, Texture, And Colour, I keep driven by always challenging myself. I Attempt to create a multi-dimensional world through a two dimensional stage. As a result I produce Depth and Emotion in each piece.

Art has always been my passion. As a little girl I took every art class available. My High School teacher first introduced me to painting and creating clay sculptcures. I fell in love with it and in the next couple of years had painting and clay sculptures in art shows. I studied Graphic Design at Algonquin College, learning about the elements and design of art. I learned Life Drawing at St. Lawrence College as well as other painting classes.

Despite my catastrophic car accident in 2005, I did not give up on my passion. I re-learned the principles I once knew. Since then, I have been applying them to my works.


Because of my efforts and perseverance, I was invited to display my art in the Biennale Internazionale Dell? Arte Contemporanea, Florence, Italy, in 2011. I was juried into the Ottawa Art Expo for 3 years, and in Ottawa's La Petite Mort Gallery for 1 year. I have been in outdoor shows such as Ottawa New Art Festival, Ottawa Art Festival, Merrickville Artisans Show, Art in Strathcona Park in Ottawa plus more. I have had several Vernissages over the years. Presently my art is in the Gallery on Gore in Perth and the Harmony Gallery in Smiths Falls, both in Eastern Ontario.

Have taught art in various mediums offering certificates for 29 years. I find teaching very rewarding and I especially enjoy watching the progression of one's craft.

In March 2012, I received an Honorable Mention in the Marianne Van Silfhout Art Gallery at St Lawrence College, for the painting Shield. In September 2014 I had my work displayed in the Splurge Magazine regarding the gallery Organic Conception, Along with numerous newspaper appearances. I am pleased to say that I had my own gallery for six years.

The Canadian Federal Government of Canada purchased 15 of my paintings.

Held in the collections of:

Private Collector - 3 large pieces from the collection 'A Little Bird Told Me'

Private Collector - 5 piece Pentapytch called 'Night'

Private Collector - 4 piece Quadriptych called 'Splashes in the Dark', plus 2 paintings

Private Collector - Commissioned 3 paintings

Private Collector - 3 works, and commissioned me for 2

Private Collector - Purchased 6 works of art


The Journey as an artist has been a successful venture. I am looking forward to what the future brings.

I don't try and force my will with a brush. We work together with the material!
