Leigh H. Slingluff
Leigh H. Slingluff has enjoyed an art & design career spanning over 3 decades. It began in earnest when she was juried into the Graphic Design undergraduate program at The University of Georgia. Leigh studied abroad via UGA in lovely Cortona, Italy. After graduating with honors, she spent several years working as a Designer at The Cartoon Network in Atlanta, Georgia. She exited the 9-5 world to live a slightly nomadic lifestyle as an Americorps Volunteer at Habitat for Humanity of San Antonio, TX and the US Peace Corps in Morocco, West Africa. Then came a husband, family, and many years wrangling two very excellent tiny humans. Now she wrangles teenagers, does freelance graphic & website design, and escapes to a studio in Gloucester MA. She also runs a small House Portrait Illustration business on Etsy.com @LeighSlingluffArt.
Leigh finds inspiration from exploring outdoors with her dog & husband, snorkeling & swimming at local beaches, watching her two sons play High School sports, and visiting museums. She has enjoyed befriending and studying with some of Cape Ann’s finest painters, and is continually curious about the rich artistic history of Cape Ann, Gloucester, and Rockport.
She enjoys working in a variety of painting mediums – oil, acrylic, watercolors, and gouache. She loves painting outdoors with friends, and is a constant observer of skies & seas, plants & animals, architecture, and folks around the town. In addition to her RAA&M Artist Membership, she is also a juried Artist Member of the North Shore Arts Association (NSAA) in Gloucester, MA and has served on the NSAA Board of Trustees since 2018.
