UK Leading Fan Artist Set To Spread Wings
By Peter Mann for British Eyes / Glasgow Eyes Magazine
Lemmy and Bowie, Robbie and Freddie, Prince, George, even the iconic Slash, the UK’s number one, leading, fan artist, Lea Williams, has arted them all.
Canvas, cups and converses, her continuing passion, and the sounds of others, flow right through her artwork, most recently portrayed on an online Lemmy competition – Lea beat off stiff competition and, upon emerging victorious, a fan of her work turned her Lemmy painting into a stunning tattoo.
It’s the craziness of the world the Potteries girl finds herself in, but she wouldn’t change a thing. Five-and-a-half years of continued progression has seen her, notoriety, go from strength-to-strength.
”Why reach for the stars when you can take the whole galaxy,” stated Lea.
“Granted I’ve made some mistakes, who hasn’t, but I hope I’ve learned from them and, with my doing this, I’m doing what I’m meant to do.”
Not only does Lea create stunning pieces of art in music she’s also been known to dabble in the worlds of professional wrestling and science fiction, but it’s the former passion she’s become internationally recognised.
“Robbie and Slash both own pieces of my work, and I’m honoured to class someone of Vicky Hamilton’s standing as both a mentor and friend,” added Lea.
Continuing with her artwork, which can be viewed online (details below), Lea also takes herself on the road, attending monthly guitar shows around the country, making friends along the way.
Throughout 2018 music, and art lovers, will be able to see her, and her work, at the following events:
