Leigh Wells

Leigh Wells has been creating images and lettering for advertising, design, publishing and editorial clients in the US and internationally for the last twenty years. She lives and works in the San Francisco Bay Area.

"This year is the 20th anniversary of my transition from design into illustration! It has been a great twenty years with so many wonderful client experiences and crazy changes in the industry. Back in the old days, I illustrated completely by hand, using acrylic paints, graphite, ink, paper and lots of glue. Though my methods have since changed, I have an extensive archive of lovely mementos of that early analog process.

I'm excited to be making that work available here. Find out when new images are posted by following me on instagram, checking back here, or asking me to alert you via email. If there is a particular image of mine you are interested in, please let me know. I’d love to send it to you!"
