Leila in her studio in South East London, 2019.

Leila is an artist based in South London. She moved up to London after a six year stint in Bristol, where she received her foundation diploma in Art and Design at Bristol School of Art and a BA (Hons) in Drawing and Print at Bristol UWE.

Her work is an expression of colour, figure and form. Through carefully orchestrated colour combinations and drawings, she attempts to convey sensuality and fluidity. Her work aims to celebrate the feminine nude, and invites the viewer to appreciate the curves, shapes and colours of her works subjects. She enjoys going through a creative process, completing each step until there is a definitive clean-cut product. Screen printing allows her to fulfil this enjoyment whilst also allowing her to concentrate on the colour aspect. Vintage colour palettes are her main source of inspiration, in particular sixties and seventies textile designs and interiors.

Leila has completed some unique commissions. The nude art form is particularly personal but can be artfully disguised within her style. This means that for some they can commission themselves, or a girlfriend or a friend, safe in the knowledge that no one will know it's them - unless they choose to share that information.
