Léa is a self taught artist, with a style of her own, born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1981.
When her parents divorced, in the midst of the Lebanese civil war, Léa and her little brother fled to Paris, France. They lived there with their grandmother for several years. After their mother remarried with a Norwegian man when Léa was 9, they moved to Oslo in Norway to reunite with her.
In 1999, she left home and went to Lebanon to study international relations at USJ in Beirut. She then specialized in corporate communication at ECS in Paris, France, where she met her husband. They settled back in Lebanon in 2004 where she has worked in journalism, event production and communication management.
Léa started to paint to express her high sensitivity and supressed emotions and fell in love with the colors and fluidity of paint. She lets her inner child guide her hand while she paints. This is why she signs her artworks “Ley” by the short of her nickname “Leyouche”.
Her unique style caught the eye of plenty as she loves to depict hearts, wings, meaningful places and strong emotions. Léa describes her style as “emotion-art” and often paints using blue, bright or metallic acrylic colors.
Léa participated in exhibitions worldwide and has her own limited edition line of products on https://leanasnas.redbubble.com
