Leila Hall, PSNM

Albuquerque, New Mexico

My interest in art started when I was young. I was fortunate to study under Paul Darrow and Phil Dike at Scripps College, in California. In recent years, I have taken workshops from Paul Murray and Deborah Secor in New Mexico. Membership in Pastel Society of New Mexico provides numerous opportunities to learn from our speakers. Artists who have inspired and thrilled me include Andrew Wyeth, Dégas and Richard Diebenkorn.
