About Carmen Leigh
It began with some crayons, my little sister, and hot summer days on my Papaw’s front porch.
Arkansas summers and working in the garden with my sister, Katrina, fill my earliest memories with happiness and warmth. After a day of gardening and shelling peas, we would bring out a fresh box of crayons, colored pencils, and butcher paper to create dreams and new worlds on paper — something I continue to do to this day. It’s always been clear to me that God put me on this earth to be an artist and create beautiful things to share with the world.
I grew up in Denison, Texas, where I met and married my high-school sweetheart, Scott, to whom I’ve been married for 32 wonderful years. Our two beautiful boys, Tristan Scott and Logan Maverick, carry on creating in new and inventive ways through their music, photography, and engineering. It’s evident to me that they were put on this earth to create beautiful things as well. My family’s unwavering love, support, and warmth are what has supported me through thick and thin — no matter what.
I want this website to be something new and beautiful. As someone who has spent her life wanting to create art that brings joy, life, and color to those I care about, I thought it was only fitting to start sharing that with the world. I hope to share all of my magical and crazy ideas, offer small collections of my work, and inspire others to start living through their creativity and happiness.
I can’t wait to share this part of my journey with you. Here’s to new dreams and new magic.
