Canadian Artist Rosemary Leach explores the rich character of familiar objects. With a focus on what is warm and personal, she examines quotidian moments with her unique vision; a milk carton strapped to an old bicycle, espresso on a messy countertop. Her compositions honour a contemplative approach to humble objects  celebrating lives deeply lived.

 

Leach's paintings are featured in collections across Canada, in the United States and in Europe.

She exhibits annually with The TEN COLLECTIVE.

 

Rosemary Leach lives in Almonte, Ontario with author Jacob Berkowitz.
