    Things On The Wall -
    Acrylic Canvas Artistry

    Moving from New Zealand to NM created a high altitude gardening challenge for me, so I transferred my acrylic canvas artistry to the empty walls in people’s homes. I paint color and character on walls in murals that ignore the weather and BRING JOY to homeowners every day of the year.

    Beautiful You Images
    Photographer and Videographer

    Leigh’s goal is to use the power of photography to combat poor self-image issues among women by empowering them to feel feminine and sexy through these portraits. She feels her role as a photographer is to capture these moments in time and document the beauty in each of us.

    Bookkeeping is my Passion
    I love helping small business owners balance their books so they know the true status of their financial well-being. So it made sense for me to open my own bookkeeping business. Now I can help even more business owners succeed financially.
