Lea Anderson, a San Diego native, has lived and worked in the New Mexico art community since 2003 and has discovered much during her adventures in the dramatic, colorful, and wild desert environment. Fluent in both two-and three-dimensional visual languages, she creates living, philosophical worlds that echo the formal variations seen in biological systems. These themes are explored through individual works as well as full-scale ambitious mixed media installations using a wide variety of both traditional and digital media. She has exhibited throughout New Mexico and the United States, as well as internationally in Bangkok, Chang Mai, and Chang Rai, Thailand. She created a monumental installation piece for the Atrium windows of the Albuquerque Museum as their 2015 Summer Artist-in-Residence. In 2017 Anderson also completed artist’s Residencies at Bullseye Glass Resource Center in Santa Fe and at the Vermont Studio Center.
