I'm Stacey Leonard, a published artist, illustrator, and designer currently located in Upstate New York.
I work remotely across the country, most commonly assuming some version of the role of Visual Artist for a variety of clients and projects. My multi-disciplinary approach to problem solving and making nice things incorporates research, graphic design, branding, and illustration, as well as other creative or mindful techniques. I strive for my finished work to be as equally beautiful as it is effective.

This project has become a favorite of mine. The objective was to curate a collection of loose, organic sketches representing the vast amount of Farmer's Market products available through my client's organization. Each illustration is sketched and painted by hand digitally, using an assortment of pencils, watercolor brushes, and impressionistic techniques on an iPad Pro. We began with a Shaker-inspired color palette, providing uniformity to the wide variety of subject matter so as to keep the collection visually cohesive. After a loose, rough pencil sketch, I layer color on color, and finish with little touches of detail and texture. This collection continues to grow each month.
