Meet the Artist

Hello there, thank you for visiting Leoni's Studio!

Uma Leoni (25) is a self-taught artist currently residing in Long Beach, CA. For the past 3 years, she has explored and practiced the art of acrylic painting. Without a formal background in art, her pieces tend to be the outcome of play and experimentation. Through the creation of abstract faces, her work allows her to explore new mediums and styles and often consists of bold linework and geometric elements.

Uma founded Leoni's Studio in 2020 during the peak of the pandemic. In need of a mental release, she picked decided to re-explore her love for painting. With the support of her friends and family, she began to share her work online and slowly began to build the community she has today. Uma made the decision to pursue her art full-time March of 2022 and is over the moon to have recently celebrated her first full year as a self employed creative. Through her content creation her ultimate goal is to push others to pursue their own creative endeavors.

Leoni’s work invites the viewer to discover a sense of familiarity. Painting is her way of communicating with the world in hopes that her work can inspire any and all who come across it to live as their most authentic selves. 

"Each and every piece I create holds a dear place in my heart. I hope they light up the rooms they are placed in and inspire those who view them to find beauty in everything they do."
