Jean Leigh is the proud owner of The Leigh Gallery, located in the heart of Lakeview on Chicago's northside. The Leigh Gallery has been open for over 11 years and is continuing to grow everyday with over 80 different artists.
"I bought my first original oil at an art fair when I was nine years old.
It has been a treasure to me ever since."
Jean's background as a Pen and Ink Artist has given her experience and connections to some of Chicago's premier local artists through the years.
Jean graduated from Northeastern Illinois University, Chicago in 1995 and has won numerous awards and has several permanent displays, most notably the Sturgeon Bay Maritime Museum in Wisconsin. Jean's ability to recognize great art from Chicago's artists can be seen in the works on display at The Leigh Gallery.
Jean's warm and charismatic personality is a joy to everyone who visits The Leigh Gallery and it makes for a friendly good time for anyone who enjoys great art.
