Julie Leff is a Fairfield County painter.
These boxed sets of 12 notecards with envelopes include prints of some of her paintings that are currently on exhibit in the lobby at Stage One of the Fairfield Theater Company.
Leff ibrings a vibrant, photorealistic freshness to conventional forms. “I paint for myself — for my love of color and form — but in a way that invites others to discover the beauty I see in the world.”
From a young age, Leff’s favorite activity was creating colorful abstract paintings and drawings. As her practice developed through decades of diligence and training, her oeuvre expanded to include florals, still lifes and portraits, as well as abstracts. Using sable brushes, Leff applies her signature palette of rich, emotion-laden color in oil paint on canvas.
Leff studied art at Yale University and the Silvermine Guild of Artists in Connecticut. Her work has appeared in numerous solo and group shows at venues including International ArtExpo, New York, NY; 92nd Street Y, New York, NY; Chelsea32 Art Gallery, New York, NY; Kershner Gallery, Fairfield, CT; and Westport Arts Center, Westport, CT.
Her work resides in international private and public collections including those of Barbara Walters, NY; Dick Cavett and Martha Rogers, NY; Xiaotao Pan, China; Fairfield County Hospice House, CT; Yale Child Study Center, CT; and Mirabilis Health, Ireland.
Julie Leff maintains a studio in Connecticut, where she is a member of the Westport Arts Center, the Artists Collective of Westport, WestonArts, and Art/Place.
