Leila Fanner

Leila Fanner is a painter, illustrator and surface pattern designer. Her creativity is interwoven with her dreams and meditative visions. Using the natural world as her subject, she explores her relationship with the material realm from both a metaphysical and a spiritual viewpoint.

Leila held her first exhibition at the age of 23. Upcoming exhibitions include ‘Redemptive Beauty’ at Eclectica Contemporary in Cape Town and at The Turbine Art Fair in Johannesburg. Her work has also featured in British Vogue’s Gallery, Real Simple and Elle Decoration South Africa, and is in private collections in South Africa, Germany, France, Kenya, England, Ireland and the USA.

Leila studied at the Johannesburg National School of the Arts. After forays into the worlds of PR and magazine promotions, and a six-year stint as an art and production director for a top retail chain, she returned to art fulltime.
