HALLS, Leanne

Born in Australia, the artist Leanne Halls spent a number of years working abroad in Japan.It was during this time that she was exposed to various kinds of traditional Japanese art and design. Her passion for art led her to pursue tutelage under master of Japanese art forms and western oil painting.It was through the encouragement of her oil Painting teacher Stavros Papantoniu that Leanne pursued a career in art by enrolling in the Julian Ashton Art School, flourishing under the tutelage of Ben Smith, Dianne Dwyer and Frank Giacco.

Leanne’s work is characterised by her fluid and expressive brushstrokes, atmospheric perspective and light.She does not paint oranges, vases or hills or trees, rather she captures the feeling of light falling across the objects within the painting.Her painting philosophy is to paint movement, the movement of light, colour and tone across the surface of any given object.

Finalist in a number of awards including Glover Art Prize, Lloyd Rees Art Prize, Eutick Memorial Still Life Award, Lethbridge 10,000 Art Prize and others, Leanne demonstrates a growing reputation and confidence
