Karon Leigh is a painter and printmaker based in Southern Arizona. Her paintings are often recognizable images of the Arizona landscape, but this non-representational artist follows the path of the abstract expressionist painters, those who attacked their canvases with a vigorous gestural expressionism, an art grounded in personal experience. You’ll find a bold use of color and a raw emotion, inviting viewers to experience the art, rather than define it..
“Landscape is always an inspiration, trying to capture the feeling of how weather and time of day or season impact each moment with shadows and light, color and movement. I work intuitively without sketches, references, or a plan. Painting is like a dance, feeling the movements and responding accordingly.”
In addition to her art background, Karon holds an MS in Integrated Marketing Communications and is the Artistic Director at Tubac Center of the Arts in Tubac, AZ.
