After studying at the Ontario College of Art, Leach entered the textile design program at Sheridan College. Principles of textile design inform her approach to composition; for example, she works with a range of 32 colours and systematically sequences them in undulating bands. Her work is reminiscent of paintings by 60s Op painter Bridget Riley, though unlike the latter’s, it is entirely painted by hand. In all of her paintings Leach follows the same design matrix, generating dynamic, wave-like spatial configurations and vibrating colour harmonies. Her work has been exhibited in Toronto and New York.
