Leigh and Bettina met serendipitously during an art tour. We quickly connected and found similar interests. California-based mixed media artist Leigh Wells (b. 1964) constructs collage-drawings composed of found images with painted accents and interventions. Leigh has exhibited in San Francisco—with solo shows at Gregory Lind Gallery, Ampersand International Arts, and Gallery 16—in New York at Zieher Smith, and abroad in Germany and the Netherlands. Her work has appeared in The New York Times, Harper’s Magazine, and Elle Decor. Leigh received her BFA from the University of San Francisco.
