Children were Leanne’s first love in painting, but this past winter she began to paint something else that she holds sacred; the wild animals that surround us in the Kootenays. Leanne feels privileged to live nestled by mountains and valley bottoms that are home to these beautiful creatures. She cherishes the sighting of a coyote in a field, a moose wading in the shallows of the quiet arm of a river, a herd of Elk communing in an open field. She hopes that as the human population grows in this region we will work for a balance of coexisting with wildlife and that we will continue to give them the respect and space they deserve.
