Signature Artist 2022: Colleen Leach

Gainesville artist, Colleen Leach is serving as the 2022 Marketplace Signature Artist.

Colleen is heavily influenced by music, and her work explores the relationship between playful bold linear works, texture and the use of color blocks as a primary compositional structure. She says she leans towards awkward color pairings and textures and pushes the envelope with her work.

An original work of Colleen’s will be included in the Preview Party live auction and her other pieces can be found in her merchant booth.
