Leah Probst is a Canadian, Toronto-based artist. Her passion for making art grew to focus on painting and soft pastel drawing using people and animals as her subjects. Probst went on to post-secondary school at Fanshawe College in London, Ontario where she completed her advanced diploma in Fine Arts. After graduation, she continued her studies at the Ontario College of Art and Design to complete her Bachelor of Fine Arts.
Probst has exhibited and sold multiple original works in art shows in galleries throughout Ontario, British Columbia, and New York. Her work mainly focuses on portraits and figures in a heightened realistic style. Probst believes that a painting should tell a story, allowing each viewer to slow down and see the beauty it brings – for each individual to take away a unique experience shared with the work of art.
