Diagnosed with cerebral palsy at 18 months, years of physical therapy and numerous surgeries is what led Leah to her love for painting and drawing. She was blessed to become an Easter Seals poster child at age 5. At age 6, she had a spinal surgery and had to learn to walk again.
Spending time in a wheelchair introduced Leah to drawing. Armed with pencils and sketchbooks, Leah began drawing. She's won several state art competitions and awards for her work.
The artist resides in Austin, Texas.
