As a lifelong artist in southern California, I took every art class in high school, and graduated from Orange Coast College with an A.A. in fine art. Working for several companies in graphic arts led to starting my own business, Leggett Graphics. Several years ago, I changed the name to Leggett Portraits, focusing more on fine art. In my studio, I have an easel on one side and a computer on the other. Oh, and I still have my big drafting table, although it’s not used for drafting anymore! I love to design paintings in the computer, sometimes combining photographs to get the right composition, and changing colors and values for maximum impact.
