Reviews and articles
"Leach’s new works explode with abstract energy, new vigour and freedom after an extended European sojourn. Her approach is intuitive - she paints autonomously, free from external influence - avoiding subject and genre yet there is structure, line and rhythm. Her mark making skills are strong as she plays with swirls, splashes and drips - perhaps evoking Pollock and Kandinsky."
