A Look into the Dramatic Work of Leah Vallespin


"A lot of my art is based on my current state of mind. So, whatever emotions I feel at the moment, I like to convey them in my art. Lately, times have been stressful and I've been feeling very negative so that explains the angst." - Leah Vallespin


"Tears of Joy"

After a week of college turning to online, I was under a lot of physical and mental stress so (calm) breakdowns were very common. This piece represents me suppressing all my emotions and anxiety until I "cry blood". It's my point of release I guess. 



"Doctor"

This piece represents my weird obsession with the Bubonic Plague. I've always found the subject to be the most interesting in history class and the bird mask is just cool in general. It's funny because I'm actually very terrified of birds, yet I seem to always draw this whenever I have an art block.



"Internal Conflict"

A representation of my mind about a month ago. I struggled with school and also with myself. Doubt about certain choices I made and overthinking caused a million thoughts to run through my head.



"Crimson"

This piece is more light-hearted. I've been going through a month of art block and I don't know why I came up with this honestly. I saw an image of a sugar skull and wanted to create a cool skeleton but it turned out like this. Though unexpected, I genuinely like it.
