Leah Cupino has painted in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains for the last 8 years.

The Glaciers have become a powerful symbol and reminder to take things slow, evaluate exactly what is my need, and ask for no more. As an artist, I shift my attention to this visceral need for a negotiation for balance in every move, gesture, commitment, and relationship we have and want.
