The things I do when I'm not painting.
Hi! Welcome to the Leck.Art Blog!

Hello! My name is Lauren. Leck.Art is all about capturing the natural environment of California through gouache and watercolor. I illustrate the landscape that surrounds and inspires me.  I’ve grown up in a city with rolling hills, hiking trails, and wildlife. And 90% of the camping I’ve done has been in the desert. Here, you’ll see a lot of that inspiration within my art.

-Thanks for being here!
