Toronto based artist, Leigh Nelson, studied at the Toronto School of Art where she received her Fine Arts Diploma in 2001. Having grown up in an artistic family, Leigh took to abstract painting from a young age as a form of rebellion against the conventional form of still life and realism. Through her work, she often experimented with angled shapes and bright colours influenced by Dali, Cubism and modern architecture. However, it wasn't until her late 20's that Leigh wanted to reinvent her approach to art and enrolled at the Canadian Business College to study digital media and graphic arts technology.
Since 2010, Leigh has sold to private collections as well as participating in group shows such as Pancakes and Booze Pop Up Art Show, RAW Underground, Hashtag Gallery, Once Chance Rebecca Gallery, Women's Art Association of Canada & The Toronto Outdoor Art Show.
