Violette Tide Studios
Violette Tide Studios is the art portfolio of Leah Bares. She works primarily in watercolor, a medium that she loves because it requires a delicate balance of control and spontaneity, often producing unexpected colors and forms that are both precise and imperfect.
She grew up south of Boston, Massachusetts, and currently lives near the beach in Plymouth, MA with her husband, baby, and Newfoundland dog. Her bloodline consists of fishermen and artists, which is why it is only natural that she would find herself painting watercolors of the sea. She enjoys spending time exploring outdoors, especially enjoying beach combing, fishing, clamming, growing succulents and gardening – all of which inspires her artwork.
