Inspired by the diversity of the world around her, Leigh Moose found herself developing a natural artistic talent and chose to narrate living through photography. Born and raised in North Carolina, Leigh kept her eyes open to the world and leaped at the opportunity to live across country. Having experienced small-town living as well as large metropolitan locations, Leigh was fascinated with the variety of architecture, color, nature, history and people each area had to offer. This exposure nurtured an appreciation in her for a variety of art mediums.
