Leigh H. Slingluff is a painter who lives in Rockport, MA.
She has a background in graphic design (BFA, University of Georgia), but has devoted her artistic energy specifically towards painting since 2011. She enjoys a wide variety of subjects, including plein air landscapes, people, animals, flowers, houses, and household objects.

She has won several Awards for her paintings, including a 2nd place ribbon in the Manchester "Painting by the Sea"-- a Cape Ann Plein Air Quick Draw event in Oct 2016. Also in 2016, she was awarded an Honorable Mention at the Rockport Art Association & Museum, for her lobster boat oil painting “Harbor Mates”.
