Bio

“The soul speaks in images” – Aristotle. “I paint everyday life, enjoying looking deeper to find the uniqueness that I know is there. I love the way light falls on the form – mystery in the shadows or a story to be told is what I want the viewer to find in my paintings.”

A graduate of University of Georgia, Atlanta artist Leah Hopkins Henry has also studied with internationally known artists including Burt Silverman and Daniel Greene. Leah has been creating art since childhood when she was drawing portraits of friends and family. Her art set her apart from her identical twin, who was more musical. She vividly remembers being asked numerous times to stand next to her sister so people could “see the difference”. This drove her to use her keen observation skills to find the subtle nuances that make people who they are. Leah is known for her portraits and figurative work, but she also does vivid award-winning landscape and captivating still life paintings. Henry’s paintings can be found in many collections across the country and have been exhibited in countless national and international juried shows, including the Oil Painters of America, American Women Artists, National Oil and Acrylic Painters Society, Allied Artists of America, Portrait Society of America, International Guild of Realism and American Artists Professional League. Her work has won many awards.

In 2005, Henry co-founded Atlanta Fine Arts League with 5 fellow artists as a catalyst for Art From the Heart, a nationally recognized program in which painters created portraits of Georgia’s fallen soldiers from Iraq and Afghanistan and donated them to surviving family members. Leah and two founders were featured on an Emmy winning GPTV “State of the Arts” segment about Art from the Heart. The project has been honored by many businesses and organizations, including Coca Cola and The National Museum of Patriotism, as well as Georgia Governor Sonny Perdue and Senator Johnny Isakson.
