Five Questions for…Leica Forrest

 My friend Leica from Canada is so much fun around, I was lucky enough to meet her two times. She also is an amazing artist and I love her photos!


1. What do you do to get into your creative zone?

* for me it is my children’s clothing. I LOVE looking at the funky designs and bright colours. They have the best textures.


Also I am a HUGE HUGE fan of graffitti.


2. Do you ever create hidden meanings or messages in your work?

* no sorry, but if it is a personal layout or one I have lot’s to tell, I write messages on the back all the time. I do write dates and ages on every page, those I make very subtle.

3.If your creative work were edible, what would it taste like?

* something with lot’s and lot’s of layers. hmm, maybe a cheesecake, something sweet at least!


or maybe my friend Sasha’s cupcakes. They are always so detailed and layered.


4.What is your favourite creation?

* I am a HUGE fan of layouts, anything altered.


I also love creating canvases.I really love layering, using lot’s of techniques and different mediums in all the projects I do.


5.What is your biggest creative success so far and why?

* I would say being published over 350 times in many different magazines, websites, ezines, manufacturer sites, etc. I have been teaching internationally now for almost 7 yrs, nationally for 13 yrs. and I LOVE it. I went to University to be a school teacher and it has progressed into this art.

Thank you so much Leica!!!
