Emily R. Schwartz, also known as Leavves, is a multi disciplinary artist from Los Angeles, CA. She most enjoys the mediums of painting, drawing, animation, and printmaking as means of employing her visual language. She derives inspiration from her sun-soaked hometown, traditional tattoo aesthetics, and popular culture. Her work primarily focuses on themes of home, death, and womanhood. Her growing body of work confronts these themes by employing both personal and universal symbols, such as tropical plants, hot cars, and digital landscapes.
