Artist Profile: Leyla Akdogan

I am delighted to have Leyla's work in the show and adorning the show flyer. Her whimsical, illustrative watercolor & ink work is so detailed & charming but at the same time a little raw with dynamic linework. - Tracey

Leyla Akdogan received her Bachelor's in Fine Arts from the University of Southern California, and studied jewelry design at the Gemological Institute of America in Manhattan. In 2005 Leyla relocated to Lacoste, France, where she studied illustration at the SCAD University campus there. In 2007 she moved back to Los Angeles & continued her studies with graphic novel illustration at Art Center in Pasadena. A three-year resident artist at The Hive Gallery & Studios in Downtown LA, she spends her time creating intricate worlds in watercolor and ink, inspired by myth, fairytale, and vigilant daydreaming.
