Leah Hopkins Henry
Atlanta portrait artist Leah Hopkins Henry has been creating art since childhood when she was drawing portraits of friends and family. Her art set her apart from her identical twin, Lynne, who had more musical talent. Leah vividly remembers being asked numerous times to stand next to her sister so people could "see the difference" in them. Since then, Leah has used her keen observation skills to find the subtle nuances that make people "who they are". Her broad audience of satisfied clients praise the special way that she captures the spirit as well as the likeness of her subjects. Leah's life-like and expressive portraits are what she is best known for, but her work also includes vivid award winning landscapes and captivating still lifes.
A graduate of the University of Georgia, Leah also attended the American College of the Applied Arts. She has studied with internationally known artists Yuqi Wang, Daniel Greene, David Leffel, John de la Vega, and Burton Silverman. Henry's paintings can be found in many collections across the country and have been exhibited in countless juried shows.
Leah maintains her studio and residence in Atlanta where she lives with her husband, Mike and their sons Zach and Stokes. She accepts commissions for family and corporate portraits, pet portraits and architecture.
