Artist | Maleisha Leo
Girramay Traditional Owner
Maleisha Leo is a Girramay woman, based in Cardwell, North Queensland.
Maleisha breathes life into old traditions with her contemporary designs. A versatile artist, her portfolio consists of paintings, printed works, woven Mindi baskets, ceramic Bigin bowls and jewellery.
Using bold, eye-catching colours - Maleisha experiments with a variety of non-traditional items such as wire, plastics, ropes and cord to create her Mindi. In perhaps one of her most popular jewellery collections to date, the now sold out Maleisha Leo Collection has cemented her status as one of North Queensland’s top emerging artists.
