About Me

Leah's work will be shown as part of a multi-disciplinary exhibition with Tony Chalkley (tiny house maker) and Rob Humphrey (jeweller) at Staffordshire. Leah will be capturing and reflecting on the forgotten people of the Goldfields, displayed in an intimate setting designed to confront and inform using found sounds as well as curated sounds inspired by the work of the jeweller and the tiny house. The work focuses on the lost children of the Goldfields and will attempt to capture the spirit of that time.
Leah is a composer from Melbourne Victoria. Having recently completed her Bachelor of Fine Arts specialising in Interactive Composition at the Victorian College of the Arts, she is ready to begin exploring the use of sound through installations and theatre to capture the essence of bygone eras. Leah's work has been shown at an international level in countries including the USA, Indonesia, France, Switzerland, Italy and the Cook islands. She is inspired by the effect of music on theatrical and performance art responses and is focused on prolonged audience experience.

Nowadays to walk down Regent Street in Steiglitz is like walking amongst ghosts. Once the towns business and social centre, it is now a dirt track with few buildings remaining.  As other towns in the region are practically exploding at the seams with people seeking the charm of country life, the population of Steiglitz remains at 7- a number represented throughout this work.

Tony has always been keen on building cubby houses. With a background in sculpture, prop making and design, it seemed natural that all these things would come together in a tiny house. Tony is a university lecturer by day and tiny house builder/sculptor by night.

I have always loved wool and started to spin when my girls were small. I progressed to weaving and felting after joining the Geelong Handweavers and Spinners Guild.
I have been fortunate in having the opportunity to exhibit samples of my work at local exhibitions, Geelong and Bendigo Shows and to have been a section winner at the Scarf Festival at the Geelong Wool Museum.

Painting

North Trail

I have been drawing all my life and received honours and awards during my school years. I sold my first painting, a watercolour at 16.
About four years ago I had my first formal lessons in soft pastels and haven’t looked back, winning an award at the Bannockburn Art Show in 2015.
I also love acrylics for a slightly abstract style.
