Leigh Brooklyn

Leigh Brooklyn was born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio where she earned a B.F.A. in Biomedical Illustration from the Cleveland Institute of Art. After graduation Brooklyn moved throughout the country gaining inspiration from marginalized individuals that she met through her pursuit of street photography. This brought her back to her roots of figurative drawing and oil painting where she hoped to use her work for activism. After a personal upheaval in 2019 Brooklyn shifted her focus toward women empowerment and building a strong army of united women warriors. Recently she learned sculpture and studied welding to incorporate 3D pieces into her growing series. Brooklyn’s work has been displayed in galleries and museums around the country from Los Angeles to New York.
