ABOUT K. A. K. LECKY

    my M. A. in Illustration at the Savannah College of Art

ARTIST STATEMENT

  • 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.
