About

The Artist

My work centres 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 "Leigh" coming from my middle name. 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. My newer works arent as gruesome as they were in my teens, however I still like to add a slight dark touch to my paintings where I can.
Now I work in a small studio set-up painting what interests me at the time, as well as doing commissioned paintings. When I'm not working at home, I'm working at a local framing store where I get to see all kinds of wonderful art.

As of 2019, my family and myself have set up a website called Pic 'n Mix. There we sell limited and open edition prints of all of our work (it's worth checking out I promise).

 

Social Media

I predominantly use instagram to show what paintings I'm working on as well as any other drawings/experimental artwork.
