Statement 
Leah Dorrian's artwork shares a reverence for mystery, divinity, wildlife, and the wonders of nature. Through each painting, she invites the viewer to contemplate and fall in love with the intrinsic magic of the human experience and the wisdom that lies within nature. Venturing deep into the mind and into her environment, her art captures the reverberations of what she discovers and wishes to inspire within the collective consciousness- a deep sense of peace, love, and urgency to protect our home.
