About

The Artist

My work centers around animals and the quriky situations they are in. Sometimes dark and surreal, sometimes cute and lighthearted.

My real name is Paige Williams, with the "Leigha" coming from my middle name "Leigh". I was born in New Zealand in 1997 and grew up in Auckland where I currently still reside. My interest in painting began with my Grandfather taking me to painting classes when I was a child. It wasn't until late highschool that I really began to take a deeper interest in painting, creating twisted and shock provoking artworks. I have always painted animals, and will usually include surreal elements both dark and light in nature.
Now I work in a small studio set-up painting what interests me at the time, as well as doing commissioned paintings.
