Leah Higgins. I am a local girl. Born at the original Scripps Hospital on Prospect and raised in La Jolla and PB. We used to own The local Ocean Toad retail clothing chain in which I was the designer. I then created my own clothing line and sold it internationally. Leah Of California. I am an SDSU alum and have 3 children 2 1/2 grandchildren.
My style is pretty much realistic with a touch of impressional ism. I paint mainly in oils at the moment but love to paint watercolors and Acrylics. I love commissions and paint people, buildings and animal portraits, ocean scenes and landscapes. I got my start by painting at least 300 homes as closing gifts for Realtors. I then print the painting on personal notecards.
I am a teacher of all mediums and teach at my historical home on Mt Soledad. I am currently in five locations. Perry Gallery La Jolla Shores, Gallery 23 at Spanish Village, la jolla Art Association location The Pangea in Pacific Beach, Emerald C Gallery in Coronado across the street from the Hotel Del.,
I feel so blessed when someone purchases one of my paintings. Please feel free to do so...I am your personal artist for hire. *Anyone that contacts me via this website will be sold through The Perry Gallery.
