New local artist, Leah Hugon

I would like to introduce you to Leah Hugon our new artist, her work is now available at Thea's.

Leah starts by drawing animal silhouettes and then cuts them out of old maps she has scavenge around Portland. She then attaches the map cuttings to birch wood that she has stained with rich colors like deep turquoise blue or a honey orange.
