Thirteen-year-old Juliette Leach will be displaying her work Sept. 13-14 in East Lynn Park at the Youth Booth along with fellow young artist Stella Racca.
“The work I am showing in the arts fair is fine art that exhibits beauty in nature or presents my take on conflicts in society,” Juliette explains.
The active teen, who enjoys soccer and sailing along with reading, acting and playing the bass guitar, draws artistic inspiration from multiple sources. “I am inspired by nature, conflict and my general surroundings, but I have also been inspired by different famous artists such as Vincent Van Gogh or Frida Kahlo.”
What does the future hold for Juliette? “I would love to pursue a job involving creativity and have thought about becoming a graphic designer, high school art teacher, scientific illustrator or an architect.”
