A series featuring Chatham artists

Lilly Kubit

Leáh Johnson ‘22 is studying for a major in interior architecture at Chatham University. She is a painter and sketch artist who likes to utilize line and organic shapes. Her work focuses on hidden symbols, which she includes in every piece. She’s inspired by her experiences, passions and observations. 

“I like to advocate for what I see and experience, especially if it is important to me. My work speaks for how I feel in the moment, and never leaves to question,” Johnson said. 

In her free time, she likes to read history books, hang out with her bunny and go on walks in nature. For more art from Johnson, check out her Instagram account @heyheyleahhere.
