I decided to treat myself and buy some art for my wall and came across some photos of amazing woven art by Lee Leibrandt. After stalking her online for awhile (nothing but love and admiration ?) and signing up for her newsletter, I knew for certain that a piece from her was what I wanted for my wall. It sounds like a huge commitment on my part but in reality the price is absolutely reasonable for a lovely handmade piece made just for me. Lee was so sweet to work with and included me, as much as I wanted to be included, in the decisions. My main requirement was that the fibers be all vegan, and she did it! I have to shout out to her father who does the amazing woodwork and frame. It all came together beautifully, so beautifully that based on the progress pictures I also asked Lee for a handwoven basket to hang on my wall. Thank you Lee, for these amazing pieces of art, for sharing your talent, for being inspired by my IG page and likes. Nothing but LOVE!
"Working with Lee was an absolute pleasure and I can’t recommend her highly enough. The piece I commissioned held a lot of emotional significance for me. Lee managed the process with professionalism, empathy and care, which filled me with confidence in her and her work. I loved receiving updates along the way and felt the excitement and momentum building right through until I received my tapestry. I am so blown away with the end result; a divine artwork, which I will treasure forever. Thank you, Lee."
"This is beautiful work. Made with beautiful hand spun yarns, it has pride of place in our family room where we can appreciate it everyday!"
"I feel honoured to have a piece in my home by this talented artist! I was after a specific theme - Scandinavian Winter - Lee created a tapestry that was beyond what I had expected! Truly an artist worth supporting!!"
"The custom tapestry is perfect and a beautiful interpretation of the original landscape photo that I gave to Lee. It was very well received as a wedding gift by my friend who really loved it. Lee is a very talented and creative artist producing very special and unique pieces of work."
