“My studio was a veranda with a thatch roof that looked out to vegetation of all colors, so my palette was ever-changing,” notes Leis. “The color linchpin, however, was GREEN – the living breathing color of life.” Her multimedia works are an expression of the imagery and ideas that flooded her during her stay in Thailand.
