October in the Gallery : : H. Leigh
THE ARTIST : H. Leigh is an acrylic painter who captures intimate connections with horses and uses them as a form of transformation and healing in the creative process. H. Leigh grew up as an only child of a single working parent and spent most of her time with horses. They have been integral to H’s recovery through grief and loss throughout her life.
She traveled around the country with renaissance festivals through her early adult life and then became an advocate for youth and homelessness. Her professional background of advocacy within area shelters over an 18 year span, along with her own recovery, sparked her motion into painting the healing journey by using her deep connection with horses. Horses have listened to her deepest core and have never judged; they are honest; they are patient. Horses are prey animals and naturally respond to changes in their environment. They make great therapists due to this fight or flight response because they detect unheard shifts in their atmosphere.
H. Leigh is a published poet, painter, and a photographer. She holds a B.A. in Creative Healing in Human Development; a degree she created to fit the love of nature and arts based education and psychology. H. enjoys researching creative processes, neuroscience, nature and arts based developmental psychology, and wishes to inspire people while they are on their own healing journey.
THE MUSICIAN : Singer-songwriter Joe Carey has been around the MN music scene for nearly two decades. He’s a vocally-driven, guitar heavy player that has been known to produce bold performances.
In addition to producing and appearing on countless recordings, Joe has also released two solo albums Wondervibe (2003) and Sunflower Soul (2009), and in 2014, headed up the release of his roots rock band The Chinwaggers’ Wayward Son which the Current called, “stylistically diverse, but big and bold from start to finish.”
