ABOUT K. A. K. LECKY
I earned my B. A. in Medieval & Early Modern
Studies and English from the University of North Carolina
at Chapel Hill in 2013 and received
my M. A. in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art
and Design in 2015.
I currently live in NC with my husband and rather fat cat.
I am an intensely curious person. I love adventure and being outdoors, surrounded by nature. Sometimes I paint. Sometimes I write. Often I do both.
While I work primarily in traditional watercolor and gouache, I also practice a unique technique of papercutting, wherein I cut out hundreds of intricate shapes from white watercolor paper using a fine x-acto knife and paint each one with watercolors and gouache. Finally, I assemble them, layer by layer, into a deep shadow box.I currently live in NC with my husband, wolf dog, and rather fat cat.
