Profile Information

Leisa Rich is an artist making conceptual 2D, sculptures and installations. Rich brings them to fruition using plastics, thread, fabrics, mixed media and detritus as her primary materials. The techniques of 3D printing, as well as free motion stitching -- otherwise known as machine embroidery, a way of "painting" and building texture with sewing thread -- are her favored methods. Leisa also dyes, paints, burns, melts, hand embroiders, casts, builds and assembles, and is a perpetual experimenter.

Personal medical challenges that reference an ephemeral existence, and the impact of human behavior on nature and the human world, are catalysts for subject matter. Involving the viewer into her Utopian world not only visually, but also tactilely through real interaction, means works that demand more than a quick glance. 

Rich has MFA, BFA and B of Education in Art degrees, and has been teaching for 40 years in schools, arts centers and universities across the U.S., Canada, and in her studio. Her work is published in numerous books, magazines, on line, and in televised interviews such as PBS' InContext. She has also written reviews and articles and created videos for art organizations, magazines and zines. She has art works in the permanent collections of Emory Healthcare, The Kamm Foundation, The Dallas Museum of Art, The University of Texas, and The University of North Texas, and in many private collections in the U.S. and Canada. Rich has just published her first children's book, comprised of 26 hand made dioramas and matching tongue twister type pages. View and order it at: www.animalalphabettravelingtwisters.com
