Welcome to Hidden Gem Artz
My name is Leaha Argue, a seasoned resident of Gabriola Island for many years. I just recently returned to the island in 2019 and have been practicing art in many forms for the past 10 years. My favourite mediums that I am currently exploring are acrylic, alcohol inks, rock art and *NEW* Weaving with driftwood.
My work is heavily inspired by my local scenery and enjoy approaching my art practice in a very loose, curious, playful, intuitive style.
I am a self taught artist that has taken courses with Penny Maday Ciochetti, Alena Hennessy, Flora Bowley, Barry Strasbourgh Thompson and Nicholas Wilton.
What's New for 2022 is you can find my pieces on display at my home studio on Moby Dick's Drive on Gabriola Island. You can also find some of my art and creations at the Silva Bay Markets on Sundays from 10-2pm all summer long starting at the beginning of July, Aquality Store and More @ 377 Berry Point Road, Nova Boutique and Gift Shop at Folklife Village Mall, and Gabriola Museum Society on South Road.
I will also be seen in this years upcoming Gabriola Island Studio Tour brochure 2022 that will be distributed asap.
