My name is Lea Byrnes and I am a 21 year old self-taught, local artist in Phoenix, Arizona! Art has always been my way of experiencing the physical world. Today, I make art to spread the message that we are all powerful and loved beings of Light, each with our own unique note to add to the song of creation. My art is a reflection of the way I have reclaimed this Truth in my own life, entering into a world of self love, healing, and helping others. My art is psychedelic, spiritual, sensual, colorful, and free flowing. I enjoy drawing and painting the female form, elements of nature, animals, and trippy patterns. My work is most often mixed media, mostly using watercolors, ink, and acrylic paint. My hope is that my art will cause its viewers to feel the sense of wonder and magic that is truly around us all the time in this mystical universe. I pray it would inspire them to reclaim their own creativity and divinity. I love art because of its healing power to help us recognize ourselves as irreplaceable co-creators. I believe we are capable of transforming this world into one built upon the foundations of compassion, forgiveness, and reawakening; one piece of art at a time.

My favorite medium to use is watercolor paints mixed with pen/ink, and sometimes acrylic paint. This is how I achieve extremely detailed pieces with bright highlights and vibrant colors.

My large acrylic paintings so far all include this special pattern of creation, which I tend to just refer to as “The Pattern”. To me, it represents consciousness and the free flowing, overlapping movement of our thoughts.

I absolutely love making custom earrings! I use acrylic paints on wooden earrings with a shiny gloss on top.
