About

Van Fossan was born and raised in the ski town of Vail, Colorado. She went on to study Art and Art History at the University of Colorado, and spent her junior year living abroad in Florence, Italy. She studied under some of the best art historians and fine art professors of our time while traveling Europe and visiting countless master works; from Caravaggio and Giotto, to Michelangelo and Leonardo, to Monet and Degas. It was during this time that her love for art deepened more than ever. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art, Van Fossan spent the next 7-8 years working in galleries in Colorado and Arizona. She also completed a Masters of Arts degree in Education with a focus on Art Education. While in Arizona, Leigh Ann met her husband, internationally renowned figure painter, James Van Fossan. They spent their first few years together building James’ career, before having a daughter and moving back to the Vail Valley. In 2014, Leigh Ann decided to revisit her own painting abilities, putting brush to canvas for the first time in nearly a decade. She now paints full-time out of her home studio in Colorado, and her work is found in public and private collections throughout the US and abroad. “At first the idea of painting again was very daunting. But now that I’ve reacquainted myself with the practice, I find each painting to be an exhilarating experience, an adventure. I am always nervous, and sometimes frustrated, but overcoming challenges is truly one of the best parts about painting. Each successful piece is a unique accomplishment.”
