This week, for the eighteenth episode in Propeller’s PODCAST series: BEYOND THE FRAME, we hear from portrait artist Leah Probst.
BEYOND THE FRAME features one-on-one inspiring interviews with Propeller artists, taking you inside the artists’ process; allowing the listener to hear first hand, the intimate stories behind the art!
Episode #18 Leah Probst
Leah Probst, a Toronto-based portrait artist dives into the process of making her work. Going over how she begins a painting, overcoming challenges, all the way to knowing when a piece is complete. In this conversation we learn about how this artist sees each painting she makes as a journey, resulting in a story that is brought to each work of art she makes
“ For me, when I’m painting everything is right and I know in my soul that this is it…this is what I’m supposed to be doing “
