JACKIE LEISHMAN

“The world is collage to me. What happens at the edges and among the layers, where two different materials or ideas meet — that’s where I’m drawn. I have bins and bins of paper and scraps in my studio. It is important to my process that I not use virgin working materials but rather fragments of older work and found materials. Something from something. Beauty from ashes. It’s also important for me to show the sometimes-raw joints, the roughness of their coming together, to be candid about the process of layering and to leave the hand of the artist apparent.” - Jackie Leishman, Visual Artist

Leishman grew up in Georgia, moving to the Los Angeles area after completing her Masters of Fine Arts degree from the Academy of Art in San Francisco. Originally trained as a photographer, she now works in collage. Using both traditional and non-traditional materials, including fragments of old projects, Leishman explores the dichotomies she witnesses.


She has shown her work nationally, won awards, and taught fine art in Utah and California. Her work is beloved by designers. She also collaborates with evolutionary biologist Steven Peck on bodies of work investigating the loss we will continue to experience with climate change.
