Jessica Ann Leffley is an exhibiting artist at the Kew-Y-Ahn Aboriginal Gallery at Hartley Historic Site.
Jessica Ann Leffley is a Lithgow based Wiradjuri woman, both an artist and primary school teacher, who expresses her imaginations and interactions of Australian native birds through drawing and painting. Her birds have been exhibited at various galleries and to her delight, have found homes throughout Australia. Leffley sees her birds as her friends, she talks to them as she peers outside her studio window admiring the Black Cockatoos, King Parrots and Rainbow Lorikeets that sing to her while she creates. Her birds bring her comfort and joy, while also challenging her to explore her creativity and to appreciate the landscapes she knows as home.
