Balancing two worlds.
I've been an artist in several forms: illustrator (scratchboard and scientific), tile artist and printmaker.
As L & J Graphics the focus is on commercial art: graphic design and illustration. With various clients (publications to beauty companies) and projects (editorial illustration to packaging) there is a common thread. That thread is curiosity combined with the drive to provide what a client needs on time and on budget.
As Lea-Way Designs, LLC, the focus is on fine arts: textile- and culturally-inspired tile designs for installation, home decor and personal decor (jewelry). A person's home or space should be his or her sanctuary. It should be a physical and spiritual sanctuary, where you go to reenergize away from the rest of the world. Why not surround and adorn yourself with things that create a place of calm and affirmation?
