About The Artwork

NOTE: MIXED MEDIA FIBERART. It's 2021! In spite of Covid, there is such positivity in the air. I can't help but reflect that in this crazy, unique work! I used layered fabrics, free motion machine embroidery, hand dyeing, applique work, and more, in between layers of die cut plexiglas. Has a lot of depth in person! I wanted to frame this piece in a neon, bright metal simple frame, but we are in a full lock down here in Canada right now, so no framing shops open! Purchase unframed and choose your own frame.

Leisa Rich was born and raised in Ontario, Canada, but spent most of her adult life living and working in the U.S. In October 2020, Leisa returned to live in Canada. Her home and studio/gallery is in a 97 year old farmhouse with recent modern additions, on 3 acres of Old MacDonald's Farm, on Howe Island, on the mighty St. Lawrence River. The island has no retail, no doctors, nothing but cottages and farms, deer, coyote, many other animals and birds, thousands of honking geese in the late fall and early spring and is accessible only by ferry! Nature never ceases to heal and inspire, and it is to nature that Rich turns for her subject matter. Her destiny as a fiber artist began early with a satin trimmed blankie; Leisa had to run the satin through her fingers from one end to the other before she could fall asleep. As a child, she spent years in the hospital due to illness and deafness, dressing her Barbie in clothes her mother made. Tactile sensations were there even when sound and humans were not. Leisa is legally deaf. Rich is a very experimental artist working primarily with fibers and mixed media in 2D, sculptural and installation formats, and incorporating 3D printing and unusual techniques into her textural art works. She continuously explores new materials in unusual ways and builds her repertoire of innovative approaches by using old things in new ways. She also creates viewer-interactive, participatory experiences. One of her favored techniques is free-motion machine embroidery -- a method of drawing and building texture using a sewing machine and thread -- as well as hand embroidery, sewing, dyeing, resin, painting and more. Rich offers viewers a magical place of wonder through works that have a storybook quality, and that sometimes invite and encourage interaction, or beckon the public to be co-creators. Rich holds Master of Fine Art- Fibers, Bachelor of Fine Art- Fibers, and Bachelor of Education in Art degrees. She has exhibited in notable museums such as the Dallas Art Museum, in many galleries and arts centers, and featured in televised interviews and features. Her work is published in over 100 books, magazines/on-line publications. Leisa published a children's book in 2015 that featured 52 dioramas she constructed of fiber techniques and materials, and in 2019, a series of How-To art books that are available on www.blurb.com.
